‘House of Cards’ composer to provide score for Steven Spielberg’s ‘Extant’

Washington, April 27: Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal, who composed the title theme of ‘House of Cards’, will be providing the score for CBS’ Steven Spielberg series ‘Extant’.

According to Deadline.com, Beal was asked to come onboard by his long-time collaborator Allen Coulter, who will be directing the pilot episode of the show that will star Halle Berry as an astronaut.

Part of the reason he is excited about the show is that it is ordered straight to series for 13 episodes, Beal said in a statement.

Beal added that having scored several television pilots, he feels the creative energy is more pure and focused for a composer working this way vs. the pilot process which always seem to ultimately get polluted by the ‘sales pitch to a studio’ kind of creative process. (ANI)
