Last October, Dave revisited the Breaking Bad universe by composing the original score to Gilligan’s feature film El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie for Netflix.

Other notable projects are James Franco’s masterful film The Disaster Artist, the worldwide hit James Spader drama The Blacklist, and AMC’s boundary-defying series Preacher.
