Craig DeLeon has created the music for The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, premiering March 11th on Apple TV+!
The series has been a passion project for Samuel L. Jackson, who produces and stars with Walton Goggins, (Justified, The Unicorn) and Marsha Stephanie Blake (I Am Your Woman, When They See Us). The series is based on the acclaimed novel by best-selling author Walter Mosley.
The drama follows Ptolemy Grey, a 91-year-old man forgotten by his family, by his friends, by even himself. On the brink of sinking even deeper into a lonely dementia, Ptolemy experiences a seismic shift when he’s given the tremendous opportunity to briefly regain his memories and uses this precious and fleeting lucidity to solve his nephew’s death and come to terms with his past.
Deleon’s elegiac postmodern score supports Jackson’s performance with elegance and dignity. It clearly vaults him into the realm of composers to watch this year. The soundtrack album will be released on Lakeshore Records day and date with the release of the series.
