HBO will premiere John Maggio’s documentary, “The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee,” on Monday, December 4.
The film about the legendary Watergate-era Washington Post editor, told primarily in his own words, also includes interviews with Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, Henry Kissinger and Robert Redford, among others.
HBO describes “The Newspaperman” as an intimate portrait of Bradlee that traces his ascent from a young Boston boy stricken with polio to one of the most consequential journalistic figures of the 20th century.
