Manners McDade composers Nick Foster and Oli Julian have scored the new Channel 4 series ‘Year of The Rabbit’.
Directed by Ben Taylor (Catastrophe, Sex Education), and billed as ‘The Sweeney meets Peaky Blinders’, Year of The Rabbit follows a trio of Victorian crime fighting detectives led by the hard-bitten Detective Inspector Rabbit (Matt Berry, Susan Wokoma and Freddie Fox), as they rub shoulders with street gangs, Bulgarian princes, spiritualists, music hall stars and the Elephant Man. The six-part comedy drama was scored by Oli Julian and Nick Foster, with a unique sound incorporating wild drums and percussion ensemble, overdriven recorders and woodwind.
Nick Foster is a multiple BAFTA-winning British composer best known for his work for television and commercials in the UK and US including ‘The A List’ (BBC), ‘Derren Brown - Sacrifice’ (Netflix) and ITV’s long-running animated series, ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ with brother Ben Foster.
Oli Julian is a composer for TV, commercials and film, recently awarded Best Title Music at the RTS Awards for his theme to ‘Motherland’. His work includes the theme music and score for hit comedy dramas ‘Sex Education’ (Netflix), ‘Catastrophe’ (C4), and ‘Plebs’ (ITV2).
Among Oli and Nick’s other collaborations are the latest two seasons of ‘Cuckoo’ for BBC One, ITV 2’s ‘Timewasters’, ‘Porters’ for Dave and the Emmy-winning ‘Hank Zipzer’.
Year of The Rabbit airs Monday 10th June, on Channel 4.
