Rick Rubin is set to be the focus of a new Showtime-produced documentary under the working title Shangri-La. Directed by Won’t You Be My Neighbor‘s Morgan Neville, the docuseries will account the acclaimed producer’s “creative process, giving viewers a taste of what it’s like to be produced by the music world’s most singular voice.”

Although the project isn’t complete, a “work-in-progress” version of the documentary is slated to debut at SXSW in March. The Def Jam co-founder began his career in the ’80s, propelling major figures in hip-hop such as Public Enemy and Run-D.M.C. Ever since, Rubin’s production skills have transcended genres, spanning from artists like Kanye West to Johnny Cash.
