All season, “Veep” has hinted at Catherine’s upcoming documentary: showing her lurking in the background of key scenes and filming the staff for her project. Last night’s “Veep” finally gave viewers a look at the film, titled “Kissing Your Sister: The Story of A Tie,” as the entire episode was told from behind Catherine’s lens.

To accompany the top-notch episode, HBO has created a website devoted to the documentary, which includes a trailer, bonus scenes, a list of influences (Queen Elizabeth II, Tilda Swinton, Ellen Degeneres, and Jane Goodall to name a few), upcoming projects, film festivals at which the film will screen (everywhere from Brooklyn, NY to Brattleboro, VT), and a place where visitors can pledge to view the documentary — a list currently at 10,090 people, according to the site.

The bonus scenes include various behind-the-scenes interviews, which cover topics from Selina’s history in politics to her legacy in office. Interviewees also take the opportunity to describe each other a little too honestly: “Her voice goes to an octave that, honestly, I just tune it out.”

Check out the trailer for Catherine’s documentary below, and visit www.kissingyoursisterfilm.com to explore the additional content.
