Jongnic Bontemps (United Skates, The Land, We Are: The Brooklyn Saints, The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel, College Behind Bars, The People v. The Klan) has been hired to score the upcoming CW sci-fi drama 4400.

King, Khailah Johnson, Cory Jeacoma, AMARR and Autumn Best. The series revolves around a group of people who vanished without a trace off the face of the planet over the last hundred years as they return in an instant to Detroit, having not aged a day with no memory of what happened to them, and must grapple with their impossible new reality. Jackson is also executive producing the CBS Television Studios & Pursued by a Bear production with Sunil Nayar (Revenge, All Rise), Anna Fricke (Walker, Wayward Pines) and Laura Terry. 4400 will premiere on October 25, 2021 and will air Monday nights on The CW.

Bontemps’ other recent projects include Julie Cohen’s & Betsy West’s documentary My Name Is Pauli Murray and Sean Gannet’s drama Last Night in Rozzie, both of which just opened in select theaters this past weekend, as well as the PBS three-part documentary Future of Work, which premiered earlier this month.
