The long-anticipated Paul McCartney / Rick Rubin docuseries, titled, McCartney 3, 2, 1, will premiere on July 16th on Hulu, according to Rolling Stone. The six-part, limited series finds the former-Beatle and famed record producer discussing all aspects of his 60-year-career. McCartney and Rubin serve as two of the project's executive producers, with the series being directed by Zachary Heinzerling.
In an official statement announcing the program, Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment’s president Craig Erwich said: “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.”
Paul McCartney has spent nearly half of his career being forced to look back at and make sense of not only his years with the Beatles — but his era-defining partnership with John Lennon. Not too long ago, McCartney recalled playing “Hey Jude” for him and Yoko Ono for the first time. “I played it to John and Yoko when I finished it all. I actually had finished but I thought there was a little more to go because there was just one bit of the words which was the movement you need is on your shoulder and I'm playing it and I'm saying to John 'I'll fix that. I'll fix that.' He said, 'What?' I said, 'The movement you need is on your shoulder. I used the word shoulder once and anyway it's a stupid expression sounds like a parrot, y'know, I'll change that.' He said, 'You won't y'know.' He said, that's the best line in the song, y'know?'”
