Daniel Licht, ‘Dexter,’ ‘Children of the Corn’ Composer, Dies at 60

Daniel Licht, ‘Dexter,’ ‘Children of the Corn’ Composer, Dies at 60
Daniel Licht, composer for TV’s “Dexter,” died of cancer late Wednesday. He was 60.

Licht scored all eight seasons of “Dexter,” the Showtime serial-killer drama, from 2006 to 2013. Although he also wrote music for movies and other TV projects, it was his quirky music for “Dexter” – employing unusual sounds using bones, knives, scissors, duct tape, wine glasses, didgeridoo, Irish harp and other instruments – that became his best-known work.

Seven albums of “Dexter” music, all featuring his scores, were released. Licht himself played many of the percussion instruments in a 10-minute orchestral suite of “Dexter” music performed live at Poland’s Krakow Film Music Festival in 2015.

Said “Dexter” executive producer Clyde Phillips: “Dan was an incredibly talented musician and composer, but most of all, he was a dear friend. His passing leaves all of us a bit quieter, a bit sadder, and without the gift of his music and his love

Code Black: Did CBS' Hectic Hospital Drama Get Your Pulse Racing?
In case you couldn’t tell from the above photo, CBS’ new medical drama Code Black is all about controlled chaos. Angels Memorial Hospital is frantic, intense and overwhelming.

With an influx of patients so great, there often aren’t enough resources to treat them — a situation known as “code black” — there’s no time for hooking up in the on-call room. An attending even tells two bickering docs, “If nobody’s taking their clothes off, I need you both on the floor now.”

‘Settlers of Catan’ Movie, TV Project in the Works

Gail Katz, whose producing credits include “Pawn Sacrifice,” “Air Force One” and “The Perfect Storm,” has acquired feature film and TV rights to the boardgame “The Settlers of Catan.”

The multiplayer game was first published in Germany in 1995. It has sold over 22 million boardgames in 30 languages.

“I’ve been wanting to see an adaptation of the game for years, ever since my Catan-obsessed college-aged kids introduced me to it,” said Katz. “The island of Catan is a vivid, visual, exciting and timeless world with classic themes and moral challenges that resonate today. There is a tremendous opportunity to take what people love about the game and its mythology as a starting point for the narrative.”

Created by Klaus Teuber, the game’s goal is to create the dominant community on the ever-changing fictional island of Catan amid the island’s scarce resources.

Katz’s films include “Outbreak,” “In the Line of Fire,

Mistresses: This Soap Opera Is As Generic As They Come

Mistresses: This Soap Opera Is As Generic As They Come
ABC's summer soap Mistresses premiered last night. It's about … mistresses. And friendship! Alyssa Milano stars as Savi — short for Savannah, pronounced like savvy, oy — a not super-happily married lawyer hooking up with a co-worker. She's besties with Karen (Lost's Yunjin Kim), a shrink who slept with one of her dying patients; April (Rochelle Aytes), a widow and single mom; and Josyln (Jes Macallan), the naughty real-estate agent younger sister. It's not that Mistresses is so terrible or anything. It's that it's shockingly generic, and feels exactly like the failed 2008 lady dramas Cashmere Mafia and Lipstick Jungle. Every line from Mistresses could be from something else. For example, these exchanges from the pilot:Patient: I am in love with you, Karen. Please tell me I'm not crazy. Please tell me that you feel it too. Guess what? She feels it too. Savi: I miss that. I miss us. The
