    G.L.O.W. - Bruce Gilbert

    Jul 10, 2018

    Bruce Gilbert delivers another stellar soundtrack for Netflix’s second season of G.L.O.W.!

    The hit series, centering on crew of misfits who reinvent themselves as the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, is loaded with the finest pop gems of the 80’s including “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now,” “Man on the Corner," “Just Like Honey” – and notably, the amazingly ironic use of “I Know What Boys Like” amidst a familiar backdrop of toxic masculinity.

    Bruce spoke to Billboard about his music selection process, balancing a hesitance to place familiar, overused hits with the poignancy that such nostalgia brings. The result is an exciting, artfully curated soundtrack that deftly avoids 80’s cliche.

    G.L.O.W. seasons one and two are streaming at Netflix.

    Screen Rant writes “…if ever there was a show demanding sumptuous visuals and elaborate set pieces to underline the enormity of what’s about to unfold, it’s American Gods… And as such, the stage is set for American Gods to deliver a big, bold, and beautiful new series.”

David Slade is directing the pilot, and Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are serving as showrunners.

    Brian previously worked with Slade and Fuller on NBC’s critically acclaimed series Hannibal.

    Fil Eisler - Dietland

    Jun 5, 2018

    AMC’s Dietland, scored by Fil Eisler, premieres to critical acclaim!

    The dark comedy from Marti Noxon stars Joy Nash as Plum Kettle, a ghostwriter for the editor of one of New York’s hottest fashion magazines. Struggling with self-image and fed up with how she’s treated by her boss and society, Plum sets out on a wildly complicated road to self-awakening.

    The New Yorker praises Noxon’s “style of incisive grotesquerie… proportionate to the intensity of its cultural critique and appropriate to a narrative propelled by dream sequences, waking nightmares, and lavish hallucinations.”

    USA Today writes “The smartly written dark dramedy, created by Marti Noxon (UnREAL), is a delectable expression of feminist anger, a parable that eviscerates the patriarchy. Dietland isn’t here to make you comfortable.”

    The LA Times commends the show on its timeliness: “Sometimes a television comedy’s premise is promising, but the execution is flawed. Sometimes the cast is wonderful, but the direction is bad. Sometimes all the right elements are there, but the timing is wrong. It’s rare when everything comes together as perfectly as it does for the dark comedy Dietland… a wonderfully absurd exaggeration of the rage that’s driving sea change like the #MeToo movement.”

    Fil has worked with Noxon previously on UnREAL, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, and To The Bone.

    Dietland airs Mondays at 9 PM / 8 Central.

    Baskets scored by Joshua Moshier returns to FX for its second season!

    Joshua’s highly individual music brings into focus the weirdness, humor and pathos that makes this series such a critical and popular hit. Click here for a few samples from the first episodes of Season 2.

    Vulture writes: “It’s the deftness with which Baskets handles these simultaneously cringeworthy, comic, and bittersweet disconnects — which almost always arise from a caring place — that make it one of TV’s most emotionally authentic shows about the way families get along.” The Daily Beast has a fantastic preview of the new season, along with an exclusive clip of the first episode.

    Baskets airs Thursdays at 10pm. For more information, visit the official website.

    Congratulations Fil Eisler, on the simply amazing debut season of Empire. The Fox show completed its first season this week and the numbers were staggering: 17.6 million viewers tuned in to watch the season finale. When the show debuted in January, it was watched by 9.9 million viewers. Empire proceeded to gain viewership every single week to the finale, a feat Nielsen stated was unmatched in their history of estimating viewership.

    Fil’s score was an unexpected and brilliant counterpoint to the songs featured on the show – recorded by a full orchestra, it was full of heightened drama, with the occasional melding of hip-hop beats into the mix. Congratulations and continued success to Fil and to everyone involved in the making of Empire. We can’t wait for next season!

    Aug 7, 2018

    Alexis & Sam just wrapped their score to the third season of the hit TNT series Animal Kingdom!

    Inspired by the 2010 Australian movie of the same name from David Michôd, Animal Kingdom centers on teen Joshua “J” Cody, who moves in with his freewheeling, criminally inclined relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of a heroin overdose.

    Animal Kingdom has the distinction of being the second highest rated basic cable one-hour series and the highest rated on TNT, no doubt directly attributable to the searing electro-acoustic scoring of this talented duo.

    This season has added Denis Leary in a recurring role, joining series regulars Ellen Barkin, who plays the matriarch of the Cody clan, along with Scott Speedman, Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, and Finn Cole.

When money is involved people act crazy and families disintegrate."
