BBC family comedy “Dodger,” which launched on children’s channel CBBC and migrated to the flagship BBC One channel, has gotten an official soundtrack release.
Universal International Studios and Back Lot Music released the official soundtrack, which features original music written by Joel Cadbury and Will Harper. You can stream the soundtrack now via all major global digital streaming platforms. The BBC series is inspired by Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist,” and takes place before the events of the classic novel and proposes a backstory for The Artful Dodger and Fagin’s gang in 1830s Victorian London.
“Dodger” is written by Rhys Thomas and Lucy Montgomery, with Charlie Higson guest writing an episode. Thomas directs alongside Hildegard Ryan. Executive producers include Thomas and Montgomery. Mark Freeland is executive producer for Universal International Studios.
Said Thomas: “The music Joel and Will composed for ‘Dodger’ is more than just a soundtrack. It’s a work of art in its own right. The score perfectly captures the anarchic, scary, hilarious, emotional and thrilling pace of the show and like all the best theme tunes, it’s impossible to imagine ‘Dodger’ without this score. I genuinely think they have created one of the best TV soundtracks of all time.”
NBCUniversal Global Distribution is handling international sales for the show.
