HBO today announced 41, a documentary about the 41st U.S. president George H.W. Bush executive produced by his long-time friend Jerry Weintraub. The doc, featuring unprecedented access to Bush as he reflects on the highs and lows of his life from his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine, and presidential library in Texas, will premiere June 14 — in conjunction with the former president’s 88th birthday June 12. “The documentary is not a political piece,” Weintraub said. “It is all about the man, his service to the country and his family.” Co-written and directed by Jeffrey Roth, 41 was filmed over a 17-month period from September 2009 to February 2011.
