Right on the heels of the selection of our new President of the United States Barack Obama -let me say that again -President of the United States Barack Obama, HBO has closed a seven figures deal for the U.S. rights to an untitled documentary about him that is produced by actor Edward Norton.
According to Reuters, Norton's Class 5 Films approached the Obama campaign in early 2006 about a documentary chronicling the new president elect's history in politics. Directors Amy Rice and Alicia Sams were granted extensive access to film Obama before he launched his presidential run in 2007 and have continued their shoot through his historic victory this week.

Apparently HBO, has been pursuing rights for several months and plans to air the documentary next year.
