Rogue Season One album digitally released
Composer Jeff Toyne’s original score to season one of DirectTV’s Rogue consisting of thirty-four tracks, has been released as an digital album. Toyne is currently working on the composition for Rogue season two, set to premiere on May 28.
“Composing the original music to ‘Rogue’ has been one of the highlights of my career. The taut storyline, great look, and the fine performances have all inspired my music,” says Toyne.
Rogue season two brings a lot of changes to the dark and gritty drama. Grace Travis (Thandie Newton) has moved to San Francisco with her daughter and is now working with the FBI. In this new season, Grace is an FBI handler for a task force investigating corporate espionage. Through her job, Grace comes into contact with Ethan Kelly (Cole Hauser), the head of a security group with a secretive past in the military.
