Insight Online News

New York, Dec 19 : The Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning composer Danny Elfman will write the theme music for the Netflix series “Wednesday”, directed by Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award-winning director Tim Burton.

Elfman will also create themes and score episodes for the series, working alongside composer Scott Bacon (“Smash”, “Bates Motel”).

“Wednesday” is a supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ (Jenna Ortega) years as a student at Nevermore Academy. Wednesday attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at the school, according to Hollywood Reporter.

Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, Gwendoline Christie, Hunter Doohan, Percy Hynes White, Joy Sunday, Emma Myers, Riki Lindhome, Jamie McShane, Georgie Farmer, Naomi Ogawa and Moosa Mostafa will also star in the series from EP-showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (“Smallville”, “Into the Badlands”).

Steve Stark, Andrew Mittman for 1.21, Kevin Miserocchi, Kayla Alpert, Jonathan Glickman for Glickmania, and Gail Berman will also exec produce, with Gandja Monteiro and James Marshall directing two episodes each.

Elfman and Burton have worked together on a host of Burton’s films dating back to his 1985 directorial debut “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure”.

Elfman has also composed music for Burton’s many classics such “Beetlejuice”, “Batman” and “Batman Returns”, “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “Mars Attacks!”, “Big Fish” (for which Elfman earned one of his four career Oscar nods), and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” among others.
