Danny Bensi & Saunder Jurriaans (OzarkBoy ErasedThe Gift, The White TigerThe Devil All the Time, Enemy) have composed the original music for the upcoming National Geographic documentary Cousteau. The film is directed by Liz Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?, Lost Girls, Bobby Fischer Against the World) and focuses on the world’s most famous ocean explorer, Jacques Cousteau, who revolutionized our understanding of the natural world, giving mankind the resources to explore the ocean with the first open-circuit, self-contained underwater breathing apparatus. The movie explores the renowned explorer’s life, revealing the man behind some of the world’s most significant contributions to marine conservation. Dan Cogan (Icarus, Immigration Nation) is producing the project with ACE Content’s Evan Hayes (Free Solo, The Way I See It). Cousteau is set to premiere this year on Disney+.

The composers also continue to score Netflix’s Ozark, which has been renewed for a fourth and final season, as well as AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, which currently airs in its sixth season Sunday nights on AMC. Bensi & Jurriaans have also recently scored the documentary Wolfgang (as part of Stenfert Charles) directed by David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi) about one of the first “celebrity chefs” to rule the scene and a pioneer in the world of California cuisine, Wolfgang Puck. Gelb is also producing the Supper Club production with Jason Sterman (Five Came Back) and Brian McGinn (Chef’s Table, Trial by Media). The composers have previously scored the McGinn-directed documentary Amanda Knox. Wolfgang will premiere on June 25, 2021 on Disney+.
