NBC News political director Chuck Todd sat down with Mitt Romney for a taped interview today that will be featured in the documentary airing prior to the Republican National Convention at the end of this month. An NBC spokesperson, who confirmed the interview and documentary to Romney’s press pool, said it would air on August 24, but later walked that back. Portions of Romney’s interview may also air earlier on NBC Nightly News.

The films were described as “biographical political documentaries” by a source at MSNBC; a spokesperson with the network did not respond for comment.
