PanARMENIAN.Net - The life of the Presidential Medal of Freedom-winning Washington Post cartoonist who took on Joe McCarthy and Richard Nixon is coming to HBO next year, Deadline said.

The premium network said that it has picked up U.S. TV rights to Herblock: The Black & The White.

The Michael Stevens-directed and George Stevens-produced documentary will air January 27.

Political cartoonist Herb Block also won four Pulitzer Prizes during his 55 years at the Post from 1944 to his death in 2001.

The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, comedian Lewis Black and journalists Ted Koppel, David Brooks, Gwen Ifill, Tom Brokaw, Bob Schieffer, Jules Feiffer, and Tom Friedman are featured in the film.

The 95-minute Herblock played at various festivals including this year’s Tribeca.
