This year is looking action packed! The incredible Golden Globe nominated show “Mr.Robot” featuring Rami Malek and Christian Slater is featuring some of our music. Some very cool 80’s classic synth work is airing on the show for Season 2 along with some classic themes from composer Bennett Salvay. Stay tuned. Also debuting Sept 10th are two new shows Sebastian Arocha has been writing on “Young Sheldon” (from the Big Bang Theory’s Chuck Lorre) on CBS and Seth MacFarlane’s “The Orville” on Fox.
