On July 16, Hulu will premiere its six-part documentary series, McCartney 3, 2, 1, which from all accounts looks pretty great. It features Sir Paul McCartney and renowned producer Rick Rubin listening to Beatles tunes, Sir Paul annotating many of them with stories, anecdotes and tales from his times with the biggest band ever.

Here’s a new trailer that popped up online this week:

Rather than rolling out an episode per week, all six episodes of the series will hit the platform on launch day. This is the documentary project McCartney teased with cryptic social media posts last year.

Said Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment president Craig Erwich of McCartney 3, 2, 1 in a statement: “Never before have fans had the opportunity to hear Paul McCartney share, in such expansive, celebratory detail, the experience of creating his life’s work — more than 50 years of culture-defining music. To be an observer as Paul and Rick Rubin deconstruct how some of the biggest hits in music history came to be is truly enlightening.”

Hulu’s synopsis for the show:

Paul McCartney sits down for a rare, in-depth, one on one with legendary producer Rick Rubin to discuss his groundbreaking work with The Beatles, the emblematic 70s arena rock of Wings and his 50 years and counting as a solo artist. In this six-episode series that explores music and creativity in a unique and revelatory manner, join Paul and Rick for an intimate conversation about the songwriting, influences, and personal relationships that informed the iconic songs that have served as the soundtracks of our lives. 

And, lest you forget, Sir Paul also has a remixed and reimagined version of his “rockdown” album, 2020’s McCartney III, due out July 23 on physical formats, following its mid-April digital premiere.

And this fall, Peter Jackson’s highly anticipated The Beatles: Get Back documentary film highlighting the creation of Let It Be will premiere on Disney+ Nov. 25, 26 and 27 as three two-hour episodes.
