Composer David Russo Returns To Score His Third DC Batman TV Series, GOTHAM KNIGHTS
Composer David Russo returns to DC’s Batman television franchise to compose the score for the newest DC “Arrowverse” series, CW’s GOTHAM KNIGHTS. Russo began in the Batman Universe as a protégé of composer Graeme Revell (SIN CITY, THE CROW, THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK), co-composing the first season of the award-winning GOTHAM with Revell. Russo became the sole composer by the second season when Revell retired. He went on to compose the series theme and first season of GOTHAM’S HBOMax spin-off, PENNYWORTH; and now he continues with the foreboding and moody musical landscape of the lawless city with his GOTHAM KNIGHTS score.
About GOTHAM KNIGHTS: In the wake of Bruce Wayne’s death, his adopted son Turner Hayes forges an unlikely alliance with runaways Harper and Cullen Row and criminal Duela when they are all accused of a murder they didn’t commit by Gotham District Attorney Harvey Dent. These kids work in an attempt to clear their names and find out who really killed Bruce Wayne – and they soon learn there is a larger, more nefarious force at work within Gotham City. This team of mismatched fugitives must band together to become Gotham’s next generation of saviors known as the Gotham Knights.
GOTHAM KNIGHTS (not directly related to the video game of the same name) premiered on March 14th with new episodes on Tuesdays on the CW. From Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, GOTHAM KNIGHTS is written by Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux and Natalie Abrams. Fiveash and Stoteraux serve as showrunners and executive produce the series alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Leigh London Redman. Abrams also serves as co-executive producer. Danny Cannon directed and served as an executive producer on the pilot, along with David Madden. GOTHAM KNIGHTS is based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.
