Looks like HBO will buy a documentary on president-elect Barack Obama and will air it in 2009. The documentary was produced by actor Edward Norton's production company, Class 5 Films, and was bought "in the seven-figure range". A nice bet by Norton paid off evidently.

A whole bunch of premieres air tonight and late night TV looks pretty good too.

The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - "Whale Wars" (pictured right), "The Soup", Leno, Conan; Saturday - "Sweeney Todd", "The Graham Norton Show"; Sunday - "Nevada Smith", "True Blood", "Entourage"
