The 4-parter features interviews with Jon Stewart, Rosie Perez, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Chuck Schumer, Bill De Blasio, Dr. Anthony Fauci, among others and explores New York City’s resilience and grit and affirming its innate ability to rebound, rebuild and endure. Lee is also executive producing the 40 Acres and a Mule production with Nancy Abraham & Lisa Heller (Allen v. Farrow, The Vow, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark). Blanchard has previously scored numerous projects directed by Lee over the last three decades. NYC Epicenters 9/11➔2021½ will premiere on August 22, 2021 on HBO.

Blanchard is also expected to return to score the second season of HBO’s Perry Mason.
