Filmmaker Martin Scorsese is making a documentary about Bill Clinton for HBO.

HBO announced that Scorsese is producing and directing the film, with Mr Clinton's cooperation.

The network did not announce an anticipated air date for the show on the nation's 42nd president, who was in office from 1993 to 2001.

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

Martin has earlier made the documentaries Public Speaking and George Harrison: Living In The Material World for HBO.
