Gabriel Mann is scoring a couple of new TV shows that are set to premiere in 2012. Among the composer’s new projects is the half-hour comedy Bent. The series is created by Tad Quill (Scrubs, Spin City) and stars Amanda Peet as a recently divorced lawyer and David Walton as an irresponsible contractor and recovering gambling addict who is hired to remodel her kitchen. Jeffrey Tambor, Margo Harshman and Joey King are co-starring. Craig Zisk (Nurse Jackie, Weeds) directed the first two episodes. The Universal Media Studios-produced show is set to premiere as a mid-season replacement this spring on NBC. No exact release date has been announced yet.

Mann, whose credits include Modern Family, The Protector, The Exes and the first couple of episodes of Ringer, is also writing the score for the new ABC Family drama Jane by Design. The show revolves around Jane, a teenager who lands a job at a hip fashion house, when they mistake her for an adult. She finds herself juggling life both as a regular high school student and as an assistant to a high powered executive in the world of fashion. The series stars Erica Dasher, Andie MacDowell, Nick Roux, Rowly Dennis, India de Beaufort, Meagan Tandy and Matthew Atkinson. Gavin Polone (Gilmore Girls), John Ziffren (Melissa & Joey) and show creator April Blair (Lemonade Mouth) are executive producing the drama. Jane by Design will premiere on January 3, 2012 and is scheduled to air every Tuesday night on ABC Family.

The composer is also scoring the pilot for the Lifetime dramedy Modern Love. The project stars Eric Stoltz as a newspaper science editor who faces a deteriorating marriage, the ramifications of potentially starting over and balancing his relationship with his adopted 15-year-old daughter. Cara Buono, Ally Sheedy and Samantha Futerman are co-starring. Jenny Bicks (Sex and the City) created the show and is also executive producing with Gail Berman (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Lloyd Braun & Gene Stein (Alphas) and Alan Poul (The Back-up Plan). An announcement whether the pilot will be picked up is expected in the near future.
