Blake Neely has been hired to score the pilot of the upcoming CW drama The Flash. The show is based on the DC Comic and stars Grant Gustin as scientist Barry Allen who is given the power of super speed that transforms him into the Fastest Man Alive, known as The Flash. Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton, Tom Kavanagh, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett and Carlos Valdes are co-starring. Greg Berlanti is executive producing the Warner Bros. Television production with Andrew Kreisberg and director David Nutter (The X-Files, Smallville). The Flash character was introduced in the CW’s Arrow, which Neely has been scoring for the past two years. The CW is expected to announce next month whether The Flash will be picked up to series.
Neely is also currently scoring the new ABC hit series Resurrection, as well as the CBS drama The Mentalist. The composer has also scored the documentary The Case Against 6, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and will be released in select theaters on June 6, 2014 before it premieres on June 23 on HBO.
