Terence Blanchard (BlacKkKlansman, Malcolm X25th Hour, HarrietOne Night in Miami…) is the composer of the new Apple TV+ original series Swagger. The show is created by Reggie Rock Bythewood (Beyond the Lights, Biker Boyz) and stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Isaiah Hill, Shinelle Azoroh, Quvenzhané Wallis, Caleel Harris, James Bingham, Ozie Nzeribe, Solomon Irama, Tessa Ferrer, Tristan Mack Wilds and Jason Rivera. The drama is inspired by NBA superstar Kevin Durant’s experiences and explores the world of youth basketball, and the players, their families and coaches who walk the fine line between dreams and ambition, and opportunism and corruption. Bythewood & Durant are also executive producing the Thirty Five Ventures, Imagine Television Studios, CBS Studios and Undisputed Cinema production with Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13) and Rich Kleiman (Fade the Black). Blanchard has previously scored the Bythewood-produced Fox drama Shots Fired for Imagine and also composed the music for the Grazer-produced feature Inside Man. Swagger will premiere this Friday, October 29 exclusively on Apple TV+.

Blanchard is also set to return to score the second season of HBO’s Perry Mason, which is expected to debut in 2022.
