The Cool Kids will be premiering on Friday, September 28 at 8:30PM on Fox. I am the composer of the score as well as the main theme. I also got a little shout out on FilmMusicReporter.com’s announcement of premieres among some other great composers.
About the Show:
From executive producer Charlie Day (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and starring Tony Award nominee David Alan Grier (“The Carmichael Show,” “In Living Color”), Emmy Award nominee Martin Mull (“Veep”, “Roseanne”), Emmy Award winner Vicki Lawrence (“Mama’s Family,” “The Carol Burnett Show”) and Emmy Award winner Leslie Jordan (“Will and Grace,” “American Horror Story”), THE COOL KIDS is a multi-camera comedy about a rowdy, rag-tag group of friends living in a retirement community who are willing to break every rule in order to have fun – because, at their age, what do they really have to lose?
