SHOWTIME DOCUMENTARY FILMS ANNOUNCES DOCU-SERIES ABOUT MYTHICAL MUSIC PRODUCER RICK RUBIN

SXSW To Screen Work-In-Progress From Oscar(R) Winning Director Morgan Neville About Rubin And His Shangri-La Studio

LOS ANGELES - January 16, 2019 - Showtime Documentary Films today announced the latest project from Academy Award(R) and Grammy(R) winner Morgan Neville (Won't You Be My Neighbor, 20 Feet From Stardom): SHANGRI-LA (wt), a docu-series about legendary music producer Rick Rubin that will air on SHOWTIME later this year. A work-in-progress will screen at SXSW in Austin in March. With Rubin's infamous studio in Malibu as the backdrop, SHANGRI-LA pulls back the veil on Rubin and his work with musicians across every genre. The series is an all-access pass into Rubin's creative process, giving viewers a taste of what it's like to be produced by the music world's most singular voice.

Rick Rubin's mark on the music scene has been indelible since he co-founded Def Jam Records while enrolled at New York University in the '80s, helping to launch the careers of Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys and Run-DMC under the label. As a music producer and record label head, Rubin has produced critically acclaimed and multi-platinum albums in almost every musical genre, with credits including Kanye West, Adele, Eminem, Black Sabbath, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, LL Cool J, Kid Rock, Slayer and The Avett Brothers. Rubin has won the Grammy Award for Producer of the Year multiple times, along with countless other Grammys for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Country Album of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, Contemporary Folk Album and Best Metal Performance.

Neville is an Academy Award, Grammy Award and Emmy(R) Award-winning director known for his work as a cultural documentarian. His acclaimed 2018 film Won't You Be My Neighbor is one of the best reviewed and highest grossing documentaries of all time. His 2013 film 20 Feet From Stardom won the Academy Award for Best Documentary as well as a Grammy Award for Best Music Film.

SHANGRI-LA is a Tremolo production. Morgan Neville, Rick Rubin, Jeff Malmberg, Danny Breen, Michael Goldberg, Eric Lynn, Isaac Heymann, Dianna Schmedeman and Jason Schrift serve as executive producers. Jeff Malmberg will direct two episodes of the series. Badges for SXSW are available at sxsw.com.

SHANGRI-LA joins the esteemed portfolio of Showtime Documentary Films that focuses on the lives and legacies of culture-defining and at times controversial figures in music, including the Grammy Award-nominated film ERIC CLAPTON: LIFE IN 12 BARS, WHITNEY. "CAN I BE ME", LYNYRD SKYNYRD: IF I LEAVE HERE TOMORROW and GEORGE MICHAEL: FREEDOM.
