Secretary Pete Buttigieg Is Getting a Documentary Called 'Mayor Pete'

If you were wondering about what it was like to be on the campaign trail with Pete Buttigieg, wonder no longer. A new documentary from Amazon Studios is set to pull back the curtain on the history-making run.

Though Buttigieg is now the U.S. Transportation Secretary, the documentary will chronicle his run for the U.S. Democratic presidential nomination. Buttigieg was not the first out gay candidate to make a run but is considered to be the first to pose as a serious contender. Along the way he made it to multiple debate stages which was previously unachieved. He also won the Iowa primary which proved a historic first. The documentary is titled Mayor Pete, the moniker he often went by in his run which came from his time as the mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

"Mayor Pete reveals the inside story of the campaign for the White House and the ways it changes the lives of those at its center," The Hollywood Reporter reports, indicating that the documentary would also show Buttigieg at home with his husband Chasten. We expect to see some big speech moments including his speech around his possible Iowa win as well as his speech announcing the end of his campaign run.

The team behind the feature is well-credentialed. Amazon Studios and film production team Story Syndicate recently collaborated on the Oscar short-listed All In: The Fight for Democracy. Producers Jesse Moss and Amanda McBaine co-directed Boys State, which was also shortlisted for an Oscar this year.
