Mark Orton – New Work

Somewhere in Queens, scored by Mark Orton, is out now in select theaters, with a soundtrack album dropping soon.

Somewhere in Queens had its world premiere at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival, and is the feature directorial debut of Ray Romano, who stars in the film alongside Laurie Metcalf, Tony Lo Bianco, Jennifer Esposito, Sebastian Maniscalco, Jacob Ward, Sadie Stanley, Jon Manfrellotti and Dierdre Friel. Romano also wrote the film, and produced it alongside Albert Berger, Ron Yerxa, and Mark Stegemann. 

Leo and Angela Russo live a simple life in Queens, surrounded by their overbearing Italian-American family. When their son ‘Sticks’ finds success on his high-school basketball team, Leo tears the family apart trying to make it happen.

Mark Orton also scored Netflix’s upcoming docu-series Working: What We Do All Day from Concordia Studio and Higher Ground Productions

Directed by Caroline Suh and hosted by Barack Obama, the series explores what makes a “good” job good. In an ideal world, every job would offer every worker good pay, purpose and a chance to grow. However, the way we earn money and seek out a livelihood are much more complicated transactions, especially when you consider the spiraling inequities many Americans face in the workplace today. Working: What We Do All Day will be available to stream May 17th.
