    THE NUN – Abel Korzeniowski: Original Review by Jonathan Broxton

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

    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.

  • RIP Daniel Licht - 1957-2017

    RIP Daniel Licht - 1957-2017

    Aug 3, 2017

    We are heartbroken to report the untimely passing of Daniel Licht, our good friend and a client of EMP since its inception. The cause of death was a rare form of sarcoma, and his passing came just weeks after it was discovered.

    Dan was probably best known for his hauntingly ironic music for the Showtime series Dexter, in which found instruments such as knives, duct tape, saws, scissors and human bones accompanied the more conventional chamber orchestra employed for the episodes.

    Dan got his start in music playing jazz guitar in New York City. We had been regaled with stories about gigs with Miles Davis and Don Cherry. He traveled the world as a studio and live player, experimenting with all manner of plucked and strummed stringed instruments. The experience served him well when a call from renowned composer Christopher Young brought him into the world of film music.

    Dan worked with Chris on a number of films and soon became known in his own right, following in his mentor’s footsteps in the horror genre with films like Hellraiser: Bloodline, Stephen King’s Thinner, and a number of the Amityville films. But his irreverent style also caught the attention of auteur indie directors like Alex Cox and Gregg Araki for whom he scored the films The Winner and Splendor. Among the hundreds of hours of television Dan scored were the series Deception, Body of Proof, The Red Road, and Guilt. He was also a huge presence in the world of games, winning awards for his score to Dishonored, Dishonored 2, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories and Downpour.

    Dan got married a little later in life, and we’ve never seen him happier than these recent years spent in his sprawling Topanga home with wife Hilary and young son Kian. We grieve with them today, as well as with his mother Eve, brothers Ed and Alan, and sister Deborah. He was also an active in a number of composer groups and was much admired by his fellow composers, some of whom have already reached out to us to share a story and a tear. He was a fantastic guy and an amazing and completely original composing talent. We’re going to miss him.

    Here’s a link to his live concert at the Krakow Film Music Festival a couple of years ago featuring Dan conducting and performing music from Dexter:

    Brian Reitzell is the composer of Bandersnatch, the groundbreaking Black Mirror episode directed by David Slade in which the viewing audience controls the story line.

    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.
