A Ron Howard Beatles documentary highlights Hulu’s original fall programming. Streaming service Hulu has released its fall schedule of original programming in hopes of enticing cable and broadcast subscribers to come on down and give it a try.

Hulu hopes to begin competing with Netflix on the original programming front. In the recent Emmy nominations, Netflix earned 54 total nominations -- No. 3 behind HBO (94) and FX (56).

• The Beatles: Eight Days a Week -- The Touring Years, Sept. 17. Directed and produced by Ron Howard, the documentary will cover the early years of The Beatles' career.
Looking back, it's hard to believe that The Beatles only lasted a decade (1960-70) and only toured for a few years. The film will focus on the period from the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco on Aug. 29, 1966.
Howard will explore how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become such a phenomenon.
Hulu says, "It will explore their inner workings -- how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together -- all the while, exploring The Beatles' extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities."
