‘Better Call Saul’ Season 2 now on DVD

Better Call Saul Season 2 DVD/Blu-Ray is out this week and now available everywhere! Among the many other special features it includes an alternate version of the infamous “Mike in the desert with the sniper rifle” scene from the S2 finale that includes a piece of score that I wrote for it — a piece we didn’t ultimately use in the version which aired. Would be curious about people’s opinions on which version they prefer and why! (no wrong answer… both have their merits). Check it out!

Entertainment Weekly Exclusive: ‘Preacher’ Main Titles

Preacher fans check it out! has an exclusive first look at the main title sequence for Preacher featuring my original theme music. Be among the first to check it out! This will be part of the show every week starting next Sunday. (The first two episodes were extra long, and therefore we didn’t include the main titles to save time.) So much love and gratitude to all of the musicians and singers who lent their talents to this (and all the other versions that didn’t make it)… and especially to James Saez, who recorded and mixed it. While I crafted many demos and tried all kinds of things, this final version sprung from my very first idea. So pleased with the results and proud of be a part of this crazy-ass show.
