Paul McCartney will work on a biographical documentary series with Rick Rubin

The news coincides with the release of Macca’s new album

On the eve of the release of Paul McCartney’s latest album, McCartney III, film insider magazine Deadline brought the news that the music legend will be working with well-known music producer Rick Rubin on a six-part documentary series that will take a look at Macca’s historic career.

In the trailer (below) the duo is working together at an undisclosed studio location, where they talk about how the bass guitar can control a band while showing vintage footage of the Beatles and McCartney’s home archives.

“We realized we were writing songs that were memorable, not because we wanted them to be memorable because we had to remember them,” McCartney tells Rubin. He also alludes to what is the greatest songwriting moment of his life.

According to Deadline, the untitled project is the first time that the original masters have ever left Abbey Road Studios. Film 45 is producing as is Frank Marshall (who just directed The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart), and Jeff Pollack.

The project has no title yet, but that doesn’t mean that streaming services will not start their bidding frenzy soon enough.
