Mark Mothersbaugh (Thor: RagnarokThe LEGO MovieCloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The Royal Tenenbaums, 21Jump Street, The Croods: A New Age) has composed the original score for the upcoming documentary series A Real Bug’s Life. The show is inspired by Pixar’s animated feature A Bug’s Life (scored by Randy Newman) and takes a look into nine different micro bug worlds around the globe, where the forces of nature play out on a miniature scale and where tiny creatures rely on amazing powers and extraordinary alliances to make it through each day. The 5-parter narrated by Awkwafina tells stories of the tiny heroes — from a jumping spider looking for a home on the streets of New York to a Costa Rican orchid bee’s first day on the job making perfume. Tom Hugh-Jones & Grant Mansfield (Tiny World, Big Beasts) and Martha Holmes (One Life, Hostile Planet) are executive producing the project for Plimsol Productions. A Real Bug’s Life will premiere on January 24, 2024 on Disney+.

Mothersbaugh also continues to score FX’s What We Do in the Shadows, which will return for a sixth season.
