Skip to comments.John McCain Documentary Production Begins: HBO Receives Special Access
Posted on 04/17/2018 4:18:22 PM PDT by ethom
Senator John McCain agreed after being diagnosed with brain cancer, to give HBO special access for a documentary on his life. Work has now begun on the television film, HBO announced on Monday.
Six-time Emmy award-winner Peter Kunhardt is set to produce and direct the documentary and is working with his Emmy-winning sons George and Teddy Kunhardt, according to Deadline.com.
The film, as of press time, is untitled and no premiere date has been set. Filmmakers are being given an exclusive look into McCains life both in Washington, D.C. and back home in Sedona, Arizona. The report listed family, friends, and political figures as those who will appear in interviews for the film.
McCain was diagnosed with a brain tumor, a glioblastoma last year. News broke of the tumor and its removal last July. HBO revealed that McCain agreed to the documentary shortly after the diagnosis. He has been resting at his home in Arizona for months while still holding his Senate seat and directing other Senators back in Washington. On Tuesday, McCains office revealed that he underwent surgery for an intestinal infection at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona.
The longtime elected Republican official from Arizona has faced criticism over his record in office. He has maintained close relationships with officials on the other side of the aisle and repeatedly involved himself in foreign affairs. One of his most recent votes created upheaval when he walked down the Senate floor and gestured a disapproving thumbs-down vote against a skinny version of Obama-care repeal and huddled up with Democrats on the Senate floor. McCains was the deciding vote to kill the bill.
The upcoming film will also feature home movies and photographs that have never been seen publicly before.

Did Vietnam turn them down because they don’t want to be associated with radical communists?
Can’t this creep get on with dying already? You’d think his death was being held up in committee on a procedural vote or something.
how about the leaking of the steele dossier? (allegedly)
Wow, who cares....
The only thing I want to see is Linda Graham pushing McCain wheel chair leading the neocon congressional forces when they drop into Syria to kill Assad...
After hating him and demonizing him in 2008 they are back to gushing in their pants over him???
How close are these buds? McTreason did not need his security detail to run safe interference for him.
Oh,goody! Yet more “Must See TV” that I won’t be seeing.
“I’d like to see the documentary, please.”
“Sorry, Mr McCain, but the documentary
is for AFTER the funeral!”
John McCain - all by himself! - got shot down in, burned up, blew up, crashed, or ejected from FIVE US Navy planes!
My guess is the North Vietnamese handed him over to (a) Russian GRU or KGB officer(s) who was (were) probably quite cruel.
Seems McCain has been looking for payback; even if it destroys the world.
I’m actually sympathetic, if he was tortured by such. But not to the point of World War IV.
thats why McQueeg didnt make admiral! He was a shoo in until he couldnt fly right...
Don’t forget the one with Chris Stevens in Libya.
Seems to me to indicate, yes, there was something else going on there.
So Hillary and company let them die.
Showtimes Anthony Weiner comeback documentary is too good not to miss.
They were there covering his political comeback in the New York mayor race.
And caught the Carlos Danger scandal from the beginning. You cant stop laughing.
I saw a little of it! It was cringeworthy for sure...
1) Not a war hero
2) Keating 5
3) Who else is going to pick the lettuce
4) Throws ‘08 election
5) Creates Isis
6) Bromance with Lindsey
7) Steele Dossier
8) Saves Obamacare for all
9) Diagnosed with cancer
I’ll pass on it.
“McCain was diagnosed with a brain tumor...”
