David Newman scores Green Eggs and Ham

Posted on November 8, 2019 by Dan Goldwasser



Over the last year, composer David Newman has been busy scoring the new Netflix and Warner Bros. Animation animated television series, Green Eggs and Ham. Based on the Dr. Seuss book of the same name, the show features the vocal talents of Adam Devine, Michael Douglas, Diane Keaton, Ilana Glazer and more. Each episode featured at least a 70-piece orchestra, and ScoringSessions.com is thrilled to bring our readers exclusive photos from the season finale scoring session that took place at the Newman Scoring Stage at Fox Studios!
