DOCUMENTARY "RUNNING WITH BETO," A BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT BETO O'ROURKE'S 2018 SENATE CAMPAIGN, DEBUTS MAY 28, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

In 2018, Beto O'Rourke staged a grassroots attempt to unseat Ted Cruz and represent Texas in the U.S. Senate. Embedded with the campaign for a year, filmmaker David Modigliani had intimate access to O'Rourke, his tight-knit family and his team of political newcomers, who championed a new way of getting to know a candidate - one Texas county at a time.

The documentary RUNNING WITH BETO, following the Democratic congressman's rise from virtual unknown to national political sensation, debuts TUESDAY, MAY 28 (8:00-9:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. The film premiered at this year's South By Southwest Film Festival, where it received the Audience Award for Documentary Spotlight.

The documentary will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms.

As a Democrat in the historically Republican stronghold of Texas, El Paso native Beto O'Rourke's journey was unique. He traveled to all 254 counties in the state, using social media in unconventional ways to convey his message while declining to accept all PAC money or corporate contributions, resulting in the best-funded grassroots campaign in U.S. Senate history.

RUNNING WITH BETO presents O'Rourke in a way he has never been seen before, underscoring the personal and political toll that running for office can take on a candidate and a family, and capturing revealing moments with his wife and three young kids throughout the grueling journey. Along the way, he must battle an onslaught of negative advertising and confront the pressures of delivering for a movement he inspires.

The film offers an inside look at O'Rourke's unorthodox staff and the passionate, diverse supporters helping spread his message in Texas. Among them are: Marcel McClinton, a 17-year-old gun safety activist who survived a mass shooting at his church; former Republican Amanda Salas, a gay Latina determined to turn out votes in her apathetic community; and Shannon Gay, a gun enthusiast from a rural military family.

RUNNING WITH BETO is a Live Action Projects production in association with Crooked Media for HBO Documentary Films; produced and directed by David Modigliani; producers, Rebecca Feferman, Nancy Schafer, Rachel Ecklund, Greg Kwedar, Michelle Modigliani; executive producers, Alex Halbert, Heather Halbert, Jon Halbert, Linda Halbert, Andrew Gill, Lindsey Gill, Akbar Mohamed, Rishma Mohammed, Lias Jeff Steen; co-executive producers, LeeAn Behrens, David Montague, Meryl Metni, Barry Munger, Sarah O'Neil, Ashley Pettus, Annie Roney, Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Tommy Vietor. For HBO: executive producers, Nancy Abraham and Lisa Heller; supervising producer, Sara Rodriguez.
