Netflix will stream a documentary about 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the subscription movie and television service announced Monday.

The documentary "Mitt" will premiere on Netflix Jan. 24. The film was directed by Greg Whiteley, a Romney family friend who first met Romney's son Tagg in 2006 "when Greg approached Tagg about doing the film," according to RJ Millard, the film's publicist and a consultant for Netflix.
