November 08, 2008|Matea Gold

HBO has acquired a still-untitled documentary about President-elect Barack Obama that will air on the premium cable channel next year.

The film, produced by Edward Norton and his production company Class 5 Films, was shot over the last 2 1/2 years with the cooperation of Obama and his campaign. Documentary filmmakers Amy Rice and Alicia Sams, who served as co-directors of the project, had access to Obama's staff, family and friends. Filming is continuing through the inauguration.
