SEASON TWO – NOW AIRING
Avant Music Port has returned to provide the music for the Second Season of this celebrated TV legal drama. The great cast has now been joined by the wonderful Maria Doyle Kennedy, which is sure to add a bit of further bite.
The first two episodes of this season are, like the last, directed by Lisa James Larsson, whereas the following ones are directed by Simon Massey.
Season Two will air on RTE in Ireland on the 7th of January, 2018, and on ACORN TV in the US from the 16th of January, 2018.
It is nominated for 2 IFTAs in April this year.
Further news coming soon.
Avant Music Port was hired by Blinder Films to place music for the four-part series Striking Out, starring Amy Huberman and Neil Morrissey and airing on RTÉ in Ireland in January 2017 and airing internationally later in the year.
Avant Music Port worked closely with the director Lisa James Larsson and Blinder and placed 25 songs in the show with a number of featured tracks and supervised the opening theme song, a customised version of Bell X1’s Out Of Love. Songs from the catalogue featured including tracks from artists Roisin O, New Portals, Cinema, Katie Laffan, Sive, Monster Monster, Aine Duffy, Paths, Zhala and Daithí. The director wanted a lot of female-fronted music in the show and lots of music from Ireland (with the show being set in Dublin) and we were happy to oblige.
One of the featured songs from Lyra – Emerald – ended up at number 2 in the Shazam Charts after the aired, such was the reaction to the song.
Amy Huberman won an IFTA for her performance in this season.
