FW18: David Schwartz - The Good Place, Arrested Development

David Schwartz has given us some of the most memorable television themes in modern times, from his very first gig as the composer for Northern Exposure with its signature creole sound to the final seasons of The Good Place and Veep in coming months. Schwartz spoke to us about the unlikely start of his career and the twists and turns along the way, including an interesting story about how a trip to Bora Bora led to the very distinctive opening music for Arrested Development. We gain a bit of insight into how Schwartz puts together a unique combination of instruments for his themes and why having producers that have musical talent themselves can be a blessing and a curse in his profession. The Good Place season 4 begins on September 26, 2019.
