HBO and director Martin Scorsese are joining forces to create a documentary about President Clinton, Deadline Hollywood reported Monday. The film is being made with the full cooperation of the ex-president. "I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as president, and my work in the years since, with HBO's audience," Clinton said in the release. Steve Bing will produce.

If seeing a whole lot of Clinton on the small screen sounds familiar, that's because it was just this past February when PBS aired its four-hour-long documentary, "Clinton," part of the network's "American Experience" series. That doc got buzz for featuring the Monica Lewinsky scandal, a part of Clinton's presidency not mentioned in the HBO release.
