Nitin Sawhney (The Namesake, Breathe, Lila Says) has been tapped to score the upcoming Channel 4 series Jerusalem. The show is written and created by Bash Doran (Outlaw KingThe Looming Tower) and stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Matt Lauria, Brandon P. Bell, Emma Appleton, Luke Treadaway, Keeley Hawes and Stephen Campbell Moore. The spy thriller revolves around Feef Symonds, a bold 20-something woman who joins the Civil Service in 1945, just as the Labour party sweeps to victory, defeating Winston Churchill in an unexpected landslide. Eleanor Moran (Watership Down) & Rory Aitken (Welcome to the PunchThe Autopsy of Jane Doe) are executive producing the project for 42, alongside Tim Carter (Garrow’s Law) for Twenty Twenty. Jerusalem will premiere in the UK in 2019 on Channel 4.

Sawhney has also recently scored Andy Serkis’ Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, which will be released in select theaters this weekend before premiering on Netflix on December 7 (a soundtrack album featuring the composer’s music will be announced soon). He also has the Irish/Belgium drama A Girl from Mogadishu directed by Mary McGuckian and starring Aja Naomi King, Martha Canga Antonio, Barkhad Abdi and Maryam Mursals coming up. The movie, which tells the story of Somali activist Ifrah Ahmed, is produced by McGuckian and Adrian Politowski and is also expected to premiere 2019.
