[UPDATE 7/7/21]: Hulu has delivered the official trailer for the upcoming documentary series, McCartney 3,2,1. Set to premiere on the streaming service on July 16th, the six-part series is comprised of interviews between Paul McCartney and Rick Rubin.

In the trailer, audiences get a first glimpse at the far-reaching conversations between the two musical masterminds, shot entirely in black and white. Soundtracked by The Beatles‘ timeless catalog, Rubin and Sir Paul weave through the latter’s long and winding musical career which spans well over half a century. Though Rubin approaches the subject matter with reverence, the two share a fair amount of laughs as McCartney finds a way to self-deprecate his work in the most famous rock band of all time.

Watch the official trailer for McCartney 3,2,1 from Hulu below, and stream the series beginning on July 16th.

[5/17/21]: Paul McCartney will sit down with famed producer Rick Rubin in a new Hulu series, McCartney 3,2,1. Revealed on Monday, the six-part documentary series will premiere via the streaming platform on July 16th.

Though McCartney and The Beatles have been the subject of countless documentaries, McCartney 3,2,1 will take on a unique format as the musician sits down for a rare, in-depth interview with another giant of the music industry. The series will cover Sir Paul’s time in The Beatles, his 1970s arena rock outfit Wings, his 50-plus year solo career, and more. A wide range of topics are on tap for discussion including songwriting, influences, and personal relationships that informed iconic songs.

“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,” said Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment. “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. It is an honor that Paul chose to return to Hulu to share this one-of-a-kind series.”

Rubin is no stranger to the interview format either, as he has served as co-host of the Broken Record podcast alongside Malcolm Gladwell since 2018. During his over 30-year career producing music—which included co-founding DefJam Records with Russel Simmons and a stint as co-president of Columbia Records—Rubin has worked with everyone from Johnny Cash to Beastie BoysSlayer to Andrew Dice ClayRed Hot Chili Peppers to Tom Petty, and everywhere in-between. In 2020 he produced The Strokes‘ Grammy-winning album The New Abnormal.
