Scorsese said that he will use conversations and interviews with the President to create the documentary.

"A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world," Scorsese said, according to Variety.

"Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure."

This is the fourth partnership between Scorsese and HBO.
