Martin Scorsese’s New George Harrison Documentary for HBO
It seems every few years, new projects shed light on old content from the Beatles stable. Which makes sense, considering the Fab Four monopolized the music scene for over a decade, and will forever own a silent majority of the current musical landscape. Beatlemaniacs should rejoice today, as the venerable Martin Scorsese has a new documentary in the works about the so-called silent Beatle, George Harrison. Behold, George Harrison: Living in the Material World.

According to Billboard, HBO has just obtained North American rights to the program which will air in two parts later this fall. The film follows the life of the late Harrison from his early days in Liverpool through his time as musician and filmmaker. Never-before-seen photos and home video were unearthed from the project, including some interviews from Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, and Phil Spector.
Scorsese produced the film with Harrison’s widow Olivia and Nigel Sinclair, the CEO of Exclusive Media Group, which includes the documentary production outfit Spitfire Pictures. Exclusive Films International, the international sales and marketing arm of Exclusive, represents worldwide rights, excluding the U.S. Scott Pascucci serves as executive producer for Grove Street and is coordinating all aspects of the film’s distribution for Grove Street.
George Harrison: Living in the Material World airs on HBO back-to-back on October 5 and 6. Set the DVRs and
