Netflix to Premiere Mitt Romney Documentary
Netflix will premiere the Mitt Romney documentary, “Mitt,” exclusively on the world’s leading Internet TV network on Friday, Jan. 24, 2014 at 12:01 AM PT.
The Netflix original documentary, which provides an intimate, rarely seen, behind-the-scenes look at a candidate running for the presidency will be available to stream in all territories where Netflix is available.
These include U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland, Latin America, the Nordics and the Netherlands.
From director Greg Whiteley (“New York Doll,” “Resolved”) and executive producer Seth Gordon (“Undefeated,” “The King of Kong”), “Mitt” will make its feature debut at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival at the Salt Lake City Gala on Friday, Jan. 17.
It follows Romney’s presidential aspirations beginning Christmas 2006 to his initial run to become the Republican nominee in 2008 and through his Presidential concession speech in 2012.

Given unprecedented access by Mitt and his family, Whiteley 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.
“Greg Whiteley’s Mitt provides viewers a surprising level of access into a fascinating world,” said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of Original Documentary and Comedy.
“This rare inside look at Mitt Romney and his family as he runs for president showcases a unique kind of storytelling, one which takes the viewer well beyond the politics. We are thrilled to be providing our viewers with this one-of-a-kind film from such a talented filmmaker.”
“It feels like a full circle moment to premiere this movie at Sundance,” said filmmaker, Greg Whiteley.
“I first met and filmed the Romney family in Park City in 2006 as they gathered to discuss whether Mitt should run for President. Over the next 7 years I couldn’t believe I was filming inside rooms and situations I had no business being in. Now that I’ve finished I couldn’t be more pleased to share this experience with audiences around the world through Netflix.”
“Mitt” is directed and produced by Greg Whiteley and executive produced by Seth Gordon.
