Hillary Clinton says her new docuseries “Hillary” took on a life of its own.
Clinton appeared at the Winter TCA press tour ahead of the release of her new Hulu docuseries alongside director Nanette Burstein. The former Secretary of State shared her thoughts on the project, excitement about attending the upcoming Sundance Film Festival, and more.
Clinton, 72, said she originally intended for “Hillary” to be a more traditional campaign documentary. Burstein, however, had a more ambitious goal and wanted to craft a “bigger story” that is “part of the arc of women’s history,” per Deadline.
Of Sundance, she said, “I’ve heard it is the most amazing experience and you can stay up for two weeks straight and see films from all over the world. I’m excited about it. I don’t know what to expect other than it’s supposed to be cold. I don’t know if I’ll have time to see any other films. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Clinton also hyped the docuseries on Twitter. She shared a Hulu trailer and wrote, “I’ve got the kind of life you can’t make up.”
The four-part “Hillary” docuseries follows the 2016 presidential campaign and Clinton’s life. It premieres March 6 on Hulu.
