Kevin Spacey and CNN Partner on ‘Race For the White House’ Docu-Series

Six-part mini docu-series narrated by Spacey will tell the stories of historic campaigns for the presidency

Kevin Spacey and CNN are partnering for a mini docu-series, “Race for the White House,” the network announced Monday.

The series, narrated by Spacey, will air previously unseen archive footage and interviews with key players from previous presidential campaigns. Each episode will revolve around the story of one campaign for the presidency.

Spacey will narrate episodes depicting a “four-year, no-holds-barred battle to become the most powerful person in the world, culminating in a single night of heart pounding tension,” according to CNN.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti bring their world-class talent to CNN,” network president Jeff Zucker said. “When we created the CNN Original Series brand, this is exactly the type of programming we had in mind and Race for the White House will be the perfect complement to our coverage of the 2016 campaigns and election.”

The third season of Spacey’s Netflix political thriller, “House of Cards,” was recently released on Netflix. Spacey’s CNN docu-series continues his pattern of political depictions.

He starred in HBO’s “Recount,” chronicling the drama around 2000 election recount between George W. Bush and Al Gore; stars in HOC, and will narrate and produce the CNN docu-series.
