The Next Best Series Podcast – Interview With Emmy-Nominated “Succession” Composer, Nicholas Britell

By Matt Neglia 

The music of “Succession” has become one of the most iconic in modern television. Having already won an Emmy for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for the first season, composer Nicholas Britell is nominated this year for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) for the third season (he was also previously nominated for season two). Having exploded in popularity in recent years due to his frequent collaborations with Barry Jenkins, Adam McKay, and now with the success of “Succession” (which has been nominated for and already won a ton of Emmys), Britell is one of the most sought after composers working in television and film today. He was kind enough to take a few moments from his busy schedule to discuss his work on his nominated episode “Chiantishire,” what his thought process is behind the show’s most iconic themes and how he develops them, what he plans for the show’s fourth season and much more! Please take a listen down below and enjoy! Thank you.
