Nainita Desai (For SamaAmerican Murder: The Family Next Door, Enslaved, Fierce Queens, Enemy Within, Telling Lies) has recently scored the upcoming Netflix docu-series Sophie: A Murder in West Cork. The 3-parter is directed by John Dower (My Scientology Movie, The Mystery of D.B. Cooper) and centers on the shocking murder of French film and TV producer Sophie Toscan Du Plantier who was killed while at her isolated holiday cottage in West Cork, Ireland, in 1996 and that set off an increasingly convoluted quest for justice that spans decades and cuts across national borders. Simon Chinn (Searching for Sugar Man, Man on Wire), Jonathan Chinn (Whitney, Tina, Untouchable) and Suzanne Lavery are producing the Lighbox production. Sophie: A Murder in West Cork will premiere on June 30, 2021 on Netflix.

Desai’s other recent projects include Jerry Rothwell’s feature documentary The Reason I Jump. The film, which has just been released in the U.S. on Blu-ray and DVD earlier this month, will open in UK theaters on June 18 and the composer’s score will be coming out on the same day (pushed back from its original April 16 release date) by Mercury Classics.
