We’re proud to present this in-depth account of the Obama White House, featuring an exclusive interview with the President himself,” said Kathy Slobogin, the executive producer of the documentary. “The talented production team at Brook Lapping interviewed only top insiders inside the Obama White House – no pundits or media – to give a powerful perspective on the challenges and successes of the administration.”
Frank Sesno, a former White House correspondent and Washington Bureau Chief for CNN, is narrating the documentary.
The special is being co-produced by BBC and will air around the world on BBC2.
