‘Hick’ Town
John Hickenlooper had never run for office prior his election as Mayor of Denver in 2003. In 2005, Time Magazine named him one of the top 5 big-city mayors in America. In 2007, Denver elected Hickenlooper to his second term. In 2008, Hickenlooper played host to the Democratic National Convention. How did a small businessman who had never been in politics find himself successfully running one of America's largest cities? Our cameras take you inside the Hickenlooper administration to show his unique approach to governing, as the Mayor tries to hold on to his political integrity while under constant scrutiny from the media and the public. ‘Hick’ Town is executive produced by R.J. Cutler and Donald Zuckerman and directed by George Hickenlooper.
