Volker Bertelmann (aka Hauschka) (Lion, Adrift, Patrick Melrose, Gunpowder) has signed on to score the upcoming limited series The Name of the Rose. The 8-parter stars John Turturro, Michael Emerson, Rupert Everett, Damian Hardung, Sebastian Koch, James Cosmo, Richard Sammel, Fabrizio Bentivoglio and Greta Scarano. The drama based on Umberto Eco’s novel (which has previously been adapted into a movie version scored by James Horner) is set in Italy in 1327 and follows a Franciscan monk and his novice as they arrive at a secluded monastery in the Alps, where they become witnesses to a series of mysterious murders. Giacomo Battiato (L’infiltré, Karol: A Man Who Became Pope) is directing the show and also co-wrote the scripts with Andrea Porporati , Nigel Williams (Elizabeth I) and Turturro . The Name of the Rose will premiere later this year on BBC in the UK, on Sky in Germany and on OCS in France.

Bertelmann also has been hired to score the upcoming BBC/Starz drama The Dublin Murders. The series is developed by Sarah Phelps (Ordeal by Innocence, The ABC Murders) based on Tana French’s first two novels in the Dublin Murder Squad crime series, In The Woods and The Likeness, and stars Killian Scott, Sarah Greene, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Moe Dunford, Leah McNamara, Ian Kenny, Eugene O’Hare, Jonny Holden, Conleth Hill and Peter McDonald. The show centers on a smart-suited detective whose English accent marks him as an outsider who is dispatched to investigate the murder of a young girl on the outskirts of Dublin with his partner. Phelps is also executive producing the Euston Films, Veritas Entertainment Group and Element Pictures production with Saul Dibb (The Duchess, Journey’s End) who is also directing multiple episodes, Kate Harwood & Noemi Spanos (Hard Sun), Alan Gasmer (Vikings) & Peter Jaysen (Fahrenheit 451), Ed Guiney (Room, The Favourite) and Elizabeth Kilgarriff (Bodyguard, Poldark).
