KEVIN KLIESCH SCORES FIRST DAYTIME EMMY® NOMINATION FOR ‘SOFIA THE FIRST’

Primetime Special SOFIA THE FIRST: THE FLOATING PALACE Would Qualify for Primetime EMMY Consideration

(May 22, 2014– Los Angeles, CA) – Composer Kevin Kliesch (THUNDERCATS, SUPERMAN: UNBOUND) has earned his first EMMY® nomination for his work on the hit Disney Junior series SOFIA THE FIRST.

“Once I found out I had been nominated from the show’s creator, Craig Gerber, I immediately woke up my wife and told her the good news. We were both shaking with excitement!” said Kliesch. “It was such an honor to hear that the Academy thought my music for SOFIA THE FIRST was award-worthy.”

Though primarily a daytime show, airing 9:30AM on Fridays, a SOFIA THE FIRST primetime special, The Floating Palace aired last year. Which means, though improbable, Kliesch could potentially be recognized with a primetime EMMY nomination later this year for the same show – a highly unusual occurrence in the music categories.

“To be nominated alongside some of the most exciting composers working in the industry was, itself, a tremendous honor.  I am totally overwhelmed by this win,” said McCreary.

McCreary credits his collaboration with show creator David S. Goyer as to what led to his first Emmy Award win.

“I must share this award with series creator David S. Goyer.  When I played him my first demo for the main title, he gave me the greatest feedback a producer can bestow.  He said the music was too short!” described McCreary. “The theme was so catchy, he wanted to hear more of it.  So, he re-cut his first episode and nearly doubled the length of the Main Title sequence, giving me the opportunity to expand on my ideas.  Now that the Main Title Theme and Main Title Design have both won Emmys, I think its safe to say that Goyer had the right idea!”
