'Fauci' will include interviews with President George W. Bush, Bill Gates and Bono.

Dr. Anthony Fauci is getting the documentary treatment.

National Geographic Documentary Films is working on a doc feature about "America's Doctor" with Oscar winner Dan Cogan (Icarus) and nominee Liz Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?) set to executive produce.

Emmy winners John Hoffman and Janet Tobias will direct the feature that will look into the history of Fauci — the longest-serving public health leader in Washington — from working at his father’s pharmacy to his fight against every recent epidemic our country has faced, from AIDS to SARS to Ebola, and now, COVID-19. Interviews will include former President George W. Bush, Bill Gates and Bono, as well as key AIDS activists and organizers, and his family, friends and former patients.

Alexandra Moss will produce. Along with Cogan and Garbus, Jon Bardin (All In: The Fight for Democracy) will executive producers for Syndicate Story.

“There is only one Dr. Fauci, and it is an incredible privilege to bring his inspiring, lifelong quest to cure disease and prevent outbreaks, to viewers around the world,” said Hoffman and Tobias.

Dr. Fauci has become a household name because of COVID-19, but what people may not realize is the heroic and integral role he has played in shaping our national response to serious health crises for more than 50 years,” added Carolyn Bernstein for Nat Geo, which has been behind doc features including Oscar winner Free Solo and, more recently, Ron Howard’s Rebuilding Paradise.
