Apple TV+ Original series Slow Horses has received a nomination in the Original Music - Fiction category for this year’s BAFTA TV Awards, which will take place on May 14. BMG’s UK-based Bespoke music service helped show creators land the legendary Rolling Stone, Mick Jagger, to create the series' opening title song ‘Strange Game’.

Jagger, a longstanding BMG publishing client, co-wrote, recorded, and performed the title track, ‘Strange Game’, alongside Oscar-nominated film composer Daniel Pemberton. 'Strange Game' captures the series’ dark and mischievous mood, and cleverly references many aspects of the show’s multiple storylines.

The hit show starring Academy Award winner Gary Oldman landed a total of five nominations at this year’s BAFTA TV Awards.

Rachel Menzies, Vice President, BMG, Bespoke Services, said: "Being recognised by BAFTA for your work is one of the best acknowledgements you can get. The Slow Horses project exemplifies what we strive to provide for our artists and clients through our Bespoke Music offering. It was very exciting to be able to creatively support and guide the artist throughout the process - from concept to realisation. We are over the moon with the nomination and have all fingers crossed for the award show."

Also nominated in this year’s BAFTA TV Awards, Matthew Herbert received a nod in the Original Music – Fiction category for his work on BBC One’s The Responder. Herbert's latest album, The Horse will be released on May 26 via Modern Recordings/BMG.

BBC/AMC’s This is Going to Hurt led this year’s BAFTA TV Awards with an impressive six nominations. The medical-comedy drama was scored by BMG songwriter Jarvis Cocker.

The BAFTA TV Awards ceremony will be broadcast on BBC One on Sunday, May 14.
