Clinton Discusses Documentary 'Hillary' At TCA
The docuseries covers her early years, continues with her time as a former secretary of state and former presidential candidate, and also includes the many scandals that rocked her life.
At the TCA event, Clinton said of the docuseries: "There was nothing off limits."
And Clinton wanted to remind the crowd, as we're heading into the first primaries and caucuses of the 2020 election season, that "this is an election that will have such profound impact."
Take Hillary's Advice
She went on:
"So take your vote seriously. And for the Democratic voters, try to vote for the person you think is most likely to win -- because at the end of the day, that is what will matter. And not just the popular vote -- but the electoral college."
CNN wrote that after she said that, Clinton got "a laugh from the audience."
It's completely unclear why people would laugh at that statement, but she continued:
"I want people to take their vote really, really seriously. Because Lord knows what will happen if we don't retire the current incumbent and his henchmen, as Nancy Pelosi so well described them," Clinton said, referring to President Donald Trump.
CNN added that Clinton has not yet endorsed any candidate for president.
'The Arc Of Women's History'
Clinton spoke at the TCA event with "Hillary" director Nanette Burstein. According to CNN, Burstein put in about 35 hours meeting with Clinton and weaved together about 1,700 hours of footage from behind closed doors.
Deadline writes that Clinton says the project began as a "more traditional campaign documentary." But as they went on, Clinton said she was "very impressed" with Burstein, who told Clinton she was interested in "the bigger story," which was “part of the arc of women’s history.”
'Hillary' Lands March 6
Hulu has also just released the trailer for the docuseries, which begins with the chants of "lock her up." The phrase, which is still heard today even though she's not running for president, originated from the 2016 Republican convention.
Clinton is heard in the trailer saying, "I promote strong opinions."
Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were also interviewed for the docuseries. It sounds like the series will also cover Bill Clinton's infidelities, including his sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky, which later led to his impeachment.
"You wanna make a difference, you wanna have an impact ... well then, you gotta get in the arena," she says as the trailer closes.
The series "Hillary" premieres March 6 on Hulu.
