harry-escottHarry Escott is currently recording his score for the upcoming mini-series New Worlds. The historical drama is written and created by Peter Flannery (Funny Bones, Our Friends In The North) & Martine Brant and stars Jamie Dornan, Freya Mavor, Alice Englert and Joe Dempsie. The four-parter is set in the 1680s during the Restoration period and follows the bitter struggles of two young men and two young women caught up in the events of the time in England and America. Charles Martin (Skins, Run) is directing the series and Johann Knobel (Shameless) is producing the Channel 4 production. Flannery, Brant and John Yorke are executive producing for Company Pictures. The project is the follow-up to 2008’s mini-series The Devil’s Whore starring Andrea Riseborough, Michael Fassbender & Dominic West, which featured a score by Murray Gold (Doctor Who). Escott’s previous scoring credits include Steve McQueen’s Shame, David Slade’s Hard Candy and last year’s Welcome to the Punch. The composer’s music for New Worlds is being recorded at Air Studios in London. The drama will premiere later this year in the UK on Channel 4.
