Even though George W. Bush ends his Presidential run in January, HBO is giving him one final send-off in the spring. According to Variety, HBO has signed on to air a live telecast of Will Ferrell's upcoming Broadway play, You're Welcome America. A Final Night With George W. Bush.
The play is slated to begin preview showings on January 20, which is Innauguration Day, and the play will open on Broadway on February 5. The airdate for the HBO special hasn't been determined yet, but the program was said to likely air in the spring, after the limited stage engagement, which is slated to end on March 15.
The show will feature Ferrell as President Bush in a farewell addresss to the United States. Ferrell collaborator Adam McKay is directing the stage play, while Marty Callner will direct the HBO special.
