HBO is producing a documentary on the first President George Bush to debut two days after his 88th birthday in June.
Titled "41," the film about the 41st president is being produced by Jerry Weintraub, a friend of the Bush family and himself the subject of "My Way," another HBO documentary. Jerry Roth, who made "The Wonder of It All" about Apollo moon walkers, is directing and writing the film.
It was made between September 2009 and February 2011.
HBO said Friday that Bush, father of the 43rd president, shares anecdotes about his youth, various jobs and term as president from 1989 to 1993. Its first airing is on June 14.
