This compelling espionage series produced by Flashbang/Temple Street/CBC co-produced series is filled with history, interesting characters and the modern approach to the stories of World War 2 espionage. In 2016 and 2017 the Canadian Screen Awards acknowledged X Company with nominations for actors, production, writing, and for Best Music Score for Amin Bhatia and Ari Posner.
Amin and Ari were thrilled to team up again with Mark Ellis and Stephanie Morgenstern after their last work together on Flashpoint. This show however is more epic and allowed for more depth in orchestral writing as well as modern electronica and ambient textures. There are also sonic clues hidden within the music score, like the ending drums in the show’s opening theme actually spelling out SOS in morse code!
Technicolor helmed the post production along with music editor Joe Mancuso, Andrea Higgins at Arpix Media, and post supervisor Richard Anobile. The sound department also garnered a 2016 CSA nomination.
The stellar cast included Evelyne Brochu (Orphan Black), Jack Laskey (Hatfields and McCoys), Warren Brown (Luther), Lara Jean Chorostecki (Hannibal), and Hugh Dillon (Flashpoint).
