About the project

Glue is stylistic murder mystery series set in the rural countryside where drugs, lust, despair and murder lay at its core. The series is the latest brainchild of six-times BAFTA winning writer Jack Thorne who’s previous accolades include ‘Skins’, ‘This is England ’86’ and ‘This is England ’88’. The production is with Eleven Film for C4 and eOne.

Synopsis: When the body of a local teenage boy is found underneath the wheels of a tractor, the villagers in this remote community and his friends are forced to open up their world and watch their secrets spill out.

Walter’s score is a combination of acoustic and electronic instruments. From recording found-sounds to solo cello and guitar, to heavy electronic treatment with his collection of analog and vintage effects – each sound was a bespoke creation to describe the haunting story.

Some impressions

“Walter’s entrancing score elevates the emotion and drama of the series to another cinematic level.”

Digitalspy

“Walter is a wonderful collaborator and true craftsman of music for the screen.”

Press

The Independent

“Teen drama puts the brutal into bucolic. It’s just like The Archers only with better acting, more ketamine and a rural murder mystery to boot.”

The Guardian

“E4’s latest flagship drama, a sexy whodunnit set in the rural home counties, is tipped to ‘do a Skins’ for its young cast”
