Equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story and coming-of-age drama, Yellowjackets is the saga of a team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness. The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over. TV-14 | 60mins
Anna Waronker is a composer, songwriter, singer, and artist. Well known as the front woman and songwriter for the Los Angeles based a band That Dog. Anna has taken her unique melodic and harmonic sensibility and personal lyrical wit into composing for film and television.
Notable scores and soundtracks include the limited series adaptation of Tegan & Sara’s best-selling memoir, High School (FreeVee), Shrill (Hulu) that she co-composed with Craig Wedren, I Love That For You (Paramount+ with Showtime), the animated series Harriet The Spy (Apple), the cult classic Josie And The Pussycats, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, and many more. Anna has also worked in theatre as a composer penning the music, book, and lyrics with Charlotte Caffey (Go-Go’s) for Lovelace A Rock Opera (The Hayworth Theater, Edinburgh Fringe Festival) and songs and score for a musical adaptation of Hit The Wall and Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner’s The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe (Los Angeles LGBT Center/Davidson/Valentini Theater). As a singer, performer, and recording artist, Anna has produced and released Old LP (UMe) in 2019. Recently, Anna has been busy working on the third season of Call Me Kat (Fox) and the young adult mystery School Spirits (Paramount+). Anna is currently working on the second season of the Emmy Nominated and Critic’s Choice winner Yellowjackets (Paramount+ with Showtime) with Craig Wedren. The duo write and perform a very unique and celebrated score. For season two of Yellowjackets, Anna and Craig have written an original song entitled “Sit Right Down” which features John Cameron Mitchell of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Additionally, in season two, Alanis Morrisette did an alternate version of Anna and Craig’s Hollywood Music in Media Award winning main title theme song called “No Return”.
Craig Wedren first gained notice as the dynamic, multi-octave-wielding front man of Shudder to Think – one of the first Washington, D.C. bands to make the transition from the revered Dischord punk label to the majors during the grunge era. Indeed, Vanity Fair called Wedren “the Freddie Mercury of Dischord.” With its eccentric song structures and complex time signatures, Shudder to Think would prove a significant influence on math rock, post-hardcore, and emo – at the same time making fans of diverse luminaries spanning Jeff Buckley to Deftones to Cursive. The likes of Incubus and Pearl Jam have also been known to cover Shudder to Think in their live shows. As Shudder to Think wound down in the late ’90s, Wedren began to pursue new, vital sonic avenues of his own. From 2005’s Lapland (Team Love) to 2017’s Adult Desire (his own Pink Ape label), Wedren has released a series of solo albums and related collaborative projects. At the same time, Wedren’s music has become an essential part of some of film and television’s most popular and lauded shows. Beginning with the soundtracks for the late ’90s films High Art and First Love, Last Rites along with his Shudder to Think bandmates, Craig’s composing resume has gone on to include extensively working with director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right) and David Wain (Role Models, Wet Hot American Summer). Wedren has gone on to create evocative, decidedly contemporary scores for cultural-touchstone films and television series including School of Rock, Laurel Canyon, Reno 911!, GLOW (Netflix), Fresh Off the Boat (ABC), Shrill (Hulu), New Amsterdam (NBC) and, most recently, the wildly popular Showtime® series Yellowjackets.
In recent years, Wedren’s endlessly creative spirit has also seen him release Adult Desire 360–a VR app comprised of 360° panoramic music videos featuring songs from his album Adult Desire; share the limited edition hard-bound book My ’90s, featuring photos he took on his Polaroid Spectra in the 1990s and early 2000s that documented his late nights and early mornings on the road with Shudder to Think and time with friends including Fugazi, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, members of The State and more; and Sabbath Sessions, his multi-episode podcast featuring musical meditations that represent his first explorations of ambient choral music, where Wedren’s technique of sampling and looping his famously elastic voice results in a unique kind of sound bath.
