Sigur Rós’ Jónsi to score new show 'Manhattan'
Following his recent appearance on “Game of Thrones,” Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi has announced a new TV project with partner Alex Somers.
Jónsi and Somers will score the WGN show “Manhattan,” which is based on the story of the Manhattan Project. According to a press release, the series follows “the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families as they attempt to co-exist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives.” The show will premiere in July.
“Manhattan” will be Jónsi’s first television score, but he previously scored the 2011 film “We Bought a Zoo.”
The series stars John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams and Daniel Stern, and is produced by Sam Shaw (“Masters of Sex") and directed by Thomas Schlamme (“West Wing”).
