blunt-talkCraig Wedren has been tapped to score the upcoming Starz original series Blunt Talk. The show is created by Jonathan Ames (Bored to Death, The Extra Man) and stars Patrick Stewart, Jacki Weaver, Adrian Scarborough, Dolly Wells, Timm Sharp and Richard Lewis. The comedy centers around Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air. Seth MacFarlane (Ted, Family Guy, American Dad) is executive producing the Media Rights Capital (MRC) production with Ames, Tristram Shapeero (Community) and Stephanie Davis (The Starter Wife). Blunt Talk is set to premiere on August 21, 2015 and will air every Saturday night on Starz.

Wedren also recently scored Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which is now available to stream on Netflix. The composer will also return to score the second season of ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat.
