Rael Jones has composed the music for ‘The Kings’, a four-part documentary series chronicling four of boxing’s greatest prizefighters —Roberto Durán, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Tommy Hearns and Sugar Ray Leonard.
The series is executive produced by James Gay-Rees (Amy, Senna, Drive To Survive) and Paul Martin (Diego Maradona, Drive To Survive), produced by Fiona Neilson (Oasis: Supersonic, Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams) and directed by Mat Whitecross (Oasis: Supersonic, Road To Guantanamo, Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams).
‘The Kings’ spotlights boxing’s evolution from the end of Muhammad Ali’s era to the era of the four boxers, set against the seismic political and socio-economic shifts taking place in the United States. Through in-depth interviews and archival footage, the series also examines the very personal battles that each man waged on his unique journey to the center of the sports world.
‘The Kings’ airs on Showtime, Sunday 6th June at 8pm ET/PT.
