Each week on Q Score, Jonathan McHugh takes us behind the scenes of the television and film content we love through the music that connects us to the content. Music helps make the shows and films you love the shows and films you love. The process of matching composers with content and music with specific scenes is fascinating and Q helps us understand the people behind the curtain and how the magic happens.
