Film and television composer Gary Lionelli created the music for ESPN’s critically acclaimed five-part miniseries “O.J.: Made in America,” directed by Ezra Edelman. In addition, he has provided music for Rory Kennedy's 2015 Academy Award nominated film "Last Days in Vietnam" and HBO's dramatic series "LUCK," starring Dustin Hoffman.

Most television projects for composers involve providing music for 30-60 minutes of show time. Most movie projects call for music for 1.5-2 hours. But what if you were approached to write music for a massive 7.5 hour movie, and given only 3 months to do so? That’s what composer Gary Lionelli faced when he was called on to provide music for the massive ESPN mini-series, “O.J.: Made in America”, a project that has the unique distinction of being eligible to win both television Emmy and film Oscar awards.
