Netflix Votes to Add Mitt Romney Documentary to Originals Slate
Netflix is set to release a new documentary about former Governor Mitt Romney and his campaign to become the President of the United States. “Mitt,” directed by Greg Whiteley, will premiere on Netflix, across all territories, on Friday, January 24, 2014.
The documentary, which is being labeled a Netflix Original, directs the lens at Romney over six years, from his initial decision to run for the presidency in 2006 to his concession speech in 2012.
Prior to its Netflix debut, “Mitt” will premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival on January 17.
Whiteley is a well-known filmmaker with credits on “New York Doll” and “Resolved.”
“It feels like a full circle moment to premiere this movie at Sundance,” said Whiteley. “I first met and filmed the Romney family in Park City in 2006 as they gathered to discuss whether Mitt should run for President. Over the next 7 years I couldn’t believe I was filming inside rooms and situations I had no business being in. Now that I’ve finished I couldn’t be more pleased to share this experience with audiences around the world through Netflix.”Tags: Documentary, Greg Whiteley, Mitt Romney, Netflix
