Ron Howard‘s feature documentary The Beatles: Eight Days A Week will air in America during the Autumn.
Hulu has secured the exclusive American streaming video on-demand rights to the documentary, which is produced with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison.
According to a press release from Hulu, the film will debut “in theatres and on Hulu this fall”.
No UK broadcast details have yet been confirmed.
Given the provisional title of The Beatles: Eight Days A Week, the film will focus on the period from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.
The Beatles: Eight Days A Week marks the first documentary feature to premiere exclusively on Hulu following its theatrical run and comes to Hulu in the company’s first-ever licensing deal with Apple Corps Ltd.
The film will be the first to launch under the new Hulu Documentary Films arm, which will serve as a new home for premium original and exclusive documentary film titles coming to Hulu.
