This episode of the Geektown Behind The Scenes Podcast features the wonderful composer, Sean Callery, the man behind the music on a huge array of brilliant tv series!
If you’ve been paying attention to the credits on some of your favourite tv shows, the chances are you have seen Sean’s name pop up. He has received 17 Emmy nominations and 4 wins, making him one of the most nominated composers of all time.
He has worked on shows including ’24’, ‘Bull’, ‘Jessica Jones’, ‘Homeland’, ‘Bones’, ‘Marvel’s InHumans’, ‘Designated Survivor’, ‘Minority Report’, and Nat Geo’s ‘The Hot Zone’ which has just been renewed for a second season. Most recently he has been working on ‘NeXt’, which stars John Slattery as a former tech CEO who joins a Homeland Cybersecurity Agent to stop the emergence of a rogue Artificial Intelligence, and has been airing on FOX in the USA.
This is the second time I’ve interviewed Sean, the first being back in 2013, so it was great to catch up again around after so long! Whilst this interview was initially set up to discuss ‘NeXt’, in the time between us arranging it and actually talking, FOX in their infinite wisdom, decided to cancel the show…
In the interview, we discuss the series, but also the cancellation, along with his work on all the other shows he has provided the music for since we last talked. He chats about things such as how scoring a procedural like ‘Bull’ is not as straightforward as you may think, dealing with scoring generally in corona-times, and also gives a moving tribute to his agent and close friend, Cheryl Tiano, from the Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency, who tragically passed away suddenly just days before this interview.
