New Hillary Clinton documentary to drop on Hulu in March

It's a trait that has characterized Clinton since her youth, as "Hillary", a new documentary series coming to Hulu makes clear.

Onstage at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., Clinton explained that nothing was off limits in the 35 hours of interviews that she conducted with director and executive producer Nanette Burstein for the docuseries.

Hillary Clinton says her new docuseries "Hillary" took on a life of its own.

That much was plain to see when the former Secretary of State appeared alongside the series' director on Friday morning, as part of Hulu's day of presentations at the Television Critic Association's Winter Press Tour, now underway in Pasadena, California. With the project dropping in the thick of the search for 2020's Democratic candidate, Clinton said she hopes that it highlights the fact that, "this is an election that will have such profound impact".

"It really started out as maybe a campaign documentary, because we had about 1,700 hours of behind the scenes footage", said Clinton, who noted "nothing was off-limits".

National Archives apologizes for blurring anti-Trump Women's March images
The display will be removed, the National Archives said, and replaced with one featuring the unedited image as soon as possible. On Saturday, women's marches were planned in more than 180 USA cities, though turnout was lower than in previous years.

The series explores the legacy of one of the most powerful, admired, and often reviled women in America, known for breaking down barriers and changing norms for women in politics as a First Lady, US Senator, Secretary of State, and the first female presidential nominee for a major political party. It's part of the arc of women's history and advancement.'. And for your Democratic voters, attempt to vote for the person that you believe is most likely to win because in the end of the day which is what's going to matter. "I hear it is the most unbelievable experience, and you could literally stay up two weeks straight and see incredible films from all over the world", Clinton said.

"Most of all, I wanted people to understand that this was a historical figure that polarized incredibly and why", she continued. Whatever the combination of reasons would be, I certainly have not done well enough to break through the perceptions that were there, "she said".

"And not only the referendum", she added painfully, but also the electoral college, as we learned. And somehow we have to assume this responsibility not only at the level of political leadership, but literally at the level of citizens, activists and concerned people. "But Nanette, who I was very impressed with when we interviewed her as the person who was going to direct the film, came back and was like, 'Look, this is a bigger story".

"Hillary", which includes what's described as previously unseen footage from the 2016 campaign as part of an "intimate portrait" of Clinton, debuts March 6 on the Hulu streaming service.

And she burst out laughing when The Salt Lake Tribune asked about the irony of premiering the Hulu documentary in Utah, which has not been a hotbed of support for the Clintons.
