So over the last few months we’ve seen teasers for NBC‘s new series The Cape and I have to admit I’m intrigued. The concept is a bit like Batman Begins meets Kick-Ass and I will watch at least one episode purely because Keith David is in it. He’s awesome in everything.
But I found out today that in addition to Keith, there’s somebody else contributing to the show that I’m a huge fan of. Bear McCreary.
Bear has done the soundtracks for such shows as The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica, and Human Target season 1. (I miss his music on season 2 of Human Target, but it’s still been a fun show this season.)
Well, here he is scoring the music for The Cape with a full orchestra. Though the music sounds a bit like what he did for <em>Human Target</em>, there are subtle differences and I’ll be interested to see what the rest of the music sounds like in that first episode.
Now I’m REALLY excited about Sunday’s premiere episode!
