In Case You're Wondering

Hope everyone enjoyed the first episode!  By the way, in case you’re wondering, here’s a couple things the new series is NOT:

· It’s not “The History of Rome” – that’s already been done quite well, thank you

· It’s not “The Young Cleopatra Selene Chronicles” (unless the networks greenlight my spec script, then all bets are off!) 
It’s instead…something different.  Many of you may already suspect where the series is going based on the title and the first episode (and you’re welcome to post your guesses).  But like I mentioned earlier, things will really start crystallizing around a half-dozen episodes in, but which time it should be fairly obvious.  Still, I hope the current “groundwork-laying” phase is as fun for you as it is for me.
And now it’s time for a very special “Thank You!” to longtime listener, and talented composer, Morten.  I was still deep in the original series when Morten first approached me with his offer to score the series.  And while I passed for “Rediscovery” (which I felt was basically a continuation of the original series), I eagerly accepted his offer for “Bloodline.”  I basically gave him a thumbnail sketch of the era and setting, and he generated a variety of wonderful musical clips, out of which emerged the current title track.  I love it, and I think it fits the new series wonderfully.  He’s even been gracious enough to title the piece “Bloodline” – how cool is that!  If you want to check out more of Morten’s great compositions, please go to morlam.dk

Thanks again for listening!

  1. I'm currently 5 minutes, 45 seconds in and laughing my ass off at the joke about iPhone cameras flashing at the sight of the young princes dressed in cute outfits.

    The opening music was fantastic and I'm really looking forward to where this series is going. Keep up the good work!
