Known for his score for the world’s most popular serial killer, Dexter, composer Daniel Licht now turns his attention to the world of Cashmere Mafia, a new dramedy by “Sex and the City” creator Kevin Wade. Starring Lucy Liu ("Charlie's Angels"), Frances O'Connor ("A.I. - Artificial Intelligence"), Miranda Otto ("Lord of the Rings") and Bonnie Somerville ("NYPD Blue") the ABC-TV series premiered Thursday, January. 3. The series moved to its regular day and time Wednesday, January 9.

“It's a much lighter show, but interestingly enough, I found that my approach for the show was not terribly, terribly different than ‘Dexter,” says Licht. “I don't want to give away much more than that. I had fun with the title 'mafia' and pushed it in that direction." Cashmere Mafia follows a group of successful female executives who have been friends since college who turn to each other for guidance as they juggle their careers with family in New York City. The premiere episode will be available on the day after airing on the network for users to watch online.

Dan Licht has been writing music for film and television for over twenty years. His credits include such films as Hellraiser Bloodline, Stephen King’s Thinner, and Permanent Midnight starring actor Ben Stiller. Licht has also written the music for several TV series including Jake in Progess, and Kitchen Confidential. Most recently, Licht was awarded the BMI TV music award for his work on the first season of Dexter.

His talent and experience allowed Licht to create a unique sound for Dexter, Licht’s music contibutes an eerie yet ironic pulse to the show. Final episodes utilized prehistoric cultural artifacts, some made from human or animal bones in concert with renowned musical archeologist Elisabeth Waldo. The first season DVD and soundtrack CD, including a narrative by Dexter star Michael C. Hall and a bonus hip-hop track Licht co-wrote with son Jon Licht, is currently in stores through Milan Records.
