Netflix continues to announce major projects for the first half of 2014. The award winning “House of Cards” premieres February 14th, and now Netflix has announced that their newest documentary “Mitt” is headed for release on January 24th. This is an all access look at Mitt Romney’s Presidential run. It’s the kind of project that viewers would normally expect from PBS or HBO. Not only does this raise profile of the network, but also ties in perfectly with “House of Cards”. For political junkies Netflix is now as important as CNN.
The trailer for “Mitt” made waves by featuring Romney’s crying reaction to losing the election against President Obama. We can all understand the tremendous pain Romney was under. This is the Romney the campaign failed to show. Check out the trailer below of Netflix’s take on election history.
Here’s the Netflix synopsis of the special.
A Netflix original documentary, Mitt is a rare and intimate account of one man’s quest for the presidency.
Given unprecedented access by Mitt Romney and his family for six years, Mitt follows the former governor’s presidential aspirations, from Christmas 2006 to his initial run to become the Republican nominee in 2008 and through his Presidential concession speech in 2012.
Director Greg Whiteley (“New York Doll,” “Resolved”) travels alongside the campaign through interactions with potential voters, preparations for the debates, personal moments with his family and concluding with final presidential election night results.
Whatever side you’re on, see another side.
“Mitt” arrives January 24th, 20134 on Netflix.
