Season 5 of Inside Amy Schumer, scored by EMP client Timo Elliston and Ray Angry, premiered two episodes this Thursday, Oct. 20, with remaining episodes dropping weekly on Paramount+ in the U.S. and internationally in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. The pair also scored Schumer’s recent Hulu dramedy series, Life & Beth.
“In addition to the score, Elliston and Angry composed a new theme for this season; and they produced a featured song for each episode written by comedy writer Ron Weiner (30 Rock). On composing for sketch comedy, Elliston says: “Writing for Inside Amy Schumer is like a musical decathlon. Within one episode you might pivot from a horror sketch, to an earnest holiday movie, to writing film noir jazz for a sketch called Fart Park.” –LBB Online
