back-in-the-gameNick Urata has composed the score for the pilot of the upcoming ABC comedy Back in the Game. The show is created by Mark and Robb Cullen (Cop Out, Las Vegas) and stars Maggie Lawson, James Caan, Lenora Crichlow, Griffin Gluck, Ben Koldyke, Kennedy Waite, J.J. Totah and Cooper Roth. The series follows a single mother who temporarily moves in with her estranged father and reluctantly starts coaching her son’s underdog little league team and is drawn back into the world of sports she vowed to leave behind. John Requa and Glenn Ficarra have directed the pilot episode and are also executive producing the 20th Century Fox Television production with Mark & Robb Cullen and Aaron Kaplan (Terra Nova). Urata has previously worked with the directors on the features I Love You Phillip Morris and Crazy, Stupid, Love.¬†Back in the Game is set to premiere this fall and will air Wednesday nights on ABC. Visit the official show website for updates.

Urata’s other upcoming projects include the indie comedies Premature and A.C.O.D., which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and has been picked up by Film Arcade for a theatrical release later this year. Currently playing in limited release is the indie drama What Maisie Knew with Urata’s soundtrack available on Milan Records.

    Smart man. Maintaining the film relationships and branching out into Television with them whilst also make some money. Hope it is a long running hit.
