There are two pieces of big news here. First: Hulu has acquired The Beatles: Eight Days a Week, a new documentary about the greatest musical group in human history (sorry, everyone else) directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard. Second: this purchase has signaled the launch of Hulu Documentary Films, a new arm for the streaming service that will, as its name implies, will focus on building a library of non-fiction movies.

Let’s start with that first bit. Despite being the most beloved, analyzed, and dissected band of the past century, The Beatles continue to be a a source of fascination for anyone with decent taste because their story is downright astonishing. How did four working class kids come together and change music forever? And how did they continue to create incredible album after incredible album despite slowly growing to hate each other’s guts? The story of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr is one the greatest true tales in all of popular culture. Even if Ron Howard just organizes all of the known information into an entertaining package, this film should prove entertaining.
