red-roadDaniel Licht has been hired to score the Sundance Channel’s upcoming original series The Red Road. The show is created by Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners, Contraband) and stars Martin Henderson, Tom Sizemore, Jason Mamoa and Julianne Nicholson. The drama centers around a local sheriff struggling to keep his family together while simultaneously policing two clashing communities: the small town where he grew up and the neighboring mountains – home of a federally unrecognized Native American tribe. Guzikowski is also executive producing the project with Sarah Condon (Bored to Death, Looking) and Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood). James Gray (The Yards, We Own the Night) has directed the first episode. Licht is coming off scoring the final season of Showtime’s Dexter, which he has been scoring for the past eight years. The Red Road is set to premiere on February 27, 2014 and will air every Thursday on the Sundance Channel. For updates on the drama, visit the official show website.
