A music documentary about the partnership between Carole King and James Taylor is in production, set to air on CNN and HBO Max. The project, titled Carole King & James Taylor: Just Call Out My Name, will explore the pair’s 2010 Troubadour Reunion Tour that took place worldwide.
King and Taylor have been friends for over 50 years and performed together at The Troubadour Club in Los Angels in 1970. They returned to the venue in 2007 to celebrate its 50th anniversary. Musicians Danny Kortchmar, Russ Kunkel and Lee Sklar, who worked with King and Taylor, will be interviewed for the documentary.
Frank Marshall is directing and producing the documentary; he said in a statement: “I’ve been listening to and playing their music my whole life, so it’s especially meaningful to me and such an honor to be able to put together (a film about) this special reunion concert by these two extraordinarily gifted friends.”
The documentary will premiere on CNN with streaming rights going to HBO Max.
