Filmmaker Martin Scorsese is making a documentary on Bill Clinton for U.S. network HBO.

HBO announced Monday that Scorsese is producing and directing the film, with Clinton's co-operation. The network did not announce an anticipated air date for the show on the 42nd U.S. president, who was in office from 1993 to 2001.

Earlier this year HBO aired a documentary on Clinton's immediate predecessor, George H.W. Bush.

Scorsese has earlier made the documentaries Public Speaking and George Harrison: Living in the Material World for HBO.

Scorsese said in a statement that Clinton "continues to shape the political dialogue" worldwide.
