The series delves into the songwriting, influences and personal relationships that informed the iconic songs he’s been behind. McCartney 3,2,1 is directed by Zachary Heinzerling and executive produced by McCartney, Rubin, Scott Rodger, Peter Berg, Matthew Goldberg, Brandon Carroll, Jeff Pollack, Frank Marshall and Ryan Suffern, with Leila Mattimore serving as co-executive producer.

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