ABC News’ Eileen Murphy reports: Longtime Clinton family friends, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason (best known as the creators of TV’s "Designing Woman") have put together a five- to six-minute tribute video, which will serve as the introduction to Senator Hillary Clinton’s, D-N.Y., remarks to the Democratic convention Tuesday night.

Sources close to Clinton say that her daughter Chelsea will narrate the short film.  And if the video is any indication, it sounds like the Tuesday night Hillary show may have a unifying tone.   

Reached by phone today, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason said that the film — which she explained is much shorter than any of the films she has made for the Clintons — is really an "homage to Hillary."

"This is really about her journey so far, and the journey is not over. This is a reminiscence of her journey on the campaign trail, what her goals are, and her relationship to the people she met," said Bloodworth-Thomason, who added that there is "quite a bit about women and the generational aspect of this journey — what it means for the daughters."

Indeed, Bloodworth-Thomason said that the tribute reflects on the transfer of values that was passed down from Hillary’s mother, Dorothy Rodham — down to her, and down to Chelsea.  Former President  Bill Clinton also appears in the video.

So, is this a unifying piece of work?  Bloodworth-Thomason said that it was, indeed, and that "there is a nod to Obama," in the video.
