Shangri-La: Shangri-La Official Teaser | SHOWTIME

Following his documentaries "Won't You Be My Neighbor" and "20 Feet From Stardom" Academy Award/Grammy winning director Morgan Neville turns his camera on famed record producer, Rick Rubin. I REALLY enjoyed this new four-part series on Rubin, now 56, who has produced hits for Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Slayer, Jay-Z and Johnny Cash. The docu-series also uncovers the history and mythology behind his Malibu recording studio, Shangri-La. Great stuff!

Coming this summer, the docu-series Shangri-La is the latest project from Academy Award® and Grammy winner Morgan Neville (Won’t You Be My Neighbor, 20 Feet From Stardom) about legendary music producer Rick Rubin.
