HBO is teaming up with Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese to create a documentary about Bill Clinton, the 42nd U.S. president.

Scorsese will direct and co-produce (with Steve Bing) the film with Clinton’s “full cooperation.”

The documentary will highlight the 66-year-old Clinton’s two terms as president, his post-presidential life (including the Clinton Foundation) and likely his marital relationship with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
