DC’s DOOM PATROL Seasons 1 and 2 Soundtracks Released– Music by Clint Mansell & Kevin Kiner
WaterTower Music announces the digital release of two new soundtracks for Seasons 1 and 2 of DOOM PATROL. The soundtracks each contain 15 tracks from the show’s respective first two seasons, and feature the music of the two sought after composers who were tapped to score the Doom Patrol music: Award-winning, Golden Globe and Grammy-nominated film composer Clint Mansell (BLACK SWAN, THE FOUNTAIN) and multiple Emmy® Nominee Kevin Kiner (NARCOS: MEXICO, STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS).
DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s strangest groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (series star Brendan Fraser), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (series star Matt Bomer), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (series star April Bowlby) and Crazy Jane (series star Diane Guerrero), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (series star Timothy Dalton). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (series star Joivan Wade), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
Developed by Jeremy Carver and based on characters created for DC by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani, the series is executive produced by Carver, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Chris Dingess. Produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, all episodes of the first two seasons are available on HBO Max.
Both albums, DOOM PATROL: Season 1 (Original Television Soundtrack) and DOOM PATROL: Season 2 (Original Television Soundtrack) are now available.
