CNN has acquired a documentary film, 41ON41, that profiles former President George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States. 

The two-hour film, which is produced by Bush's former speechwriter Mary Kate Cary and former CNN president Rick Kaplan, features 41 political and media personalities, who will talk about Bush's life and career.

Those storytellers include Fox News C.E.O. Roger Ailes, Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama and journalists Tom Brokaw and Brit Hume. Dana Carvey, whose impression of Bush became a regular feature on "Saturday Night Live," will also appear.

The film will debut on Father's Day, June 15, at 9 p.m., three days after Bush celebrates his 90th birthday.
