Fans of the critically-acclaimed HBO Max series, Hacks, can now experience the Original Series Soundtrack featuring music by multiple Emmy® and Grammy® Award winner Carlos Rafael Rivera (The Queen’s Gambit)! Out now digitally via Lakeshore Records, the evocatively melodic score expands on two main character themes, of Deborah’s and Ava’s, that evolve throughout the series (inclusive of Season 2).

“Rivera’s evocatively melodic score for Hacks revolves around its character themes for Ava and Deborah, also heard in Season 2.”

“Hacks” explores a dark mentorship that forms between Deborah Vance (Smart), a legendary Las Vegas comedian, and an entitled, outcast 25-year-old (Einbinder).

“Hacks” is created and executive produced by Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs and Jen Statsky. Also, executive producing are Michael Schur, David Miner, and Morgan Sackett. The series is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.

Says Rivera: “Well, other than having the privilege to score themes for the amazing HACKS duo that is Deborah Vance and Ava Daniels, played respectively by the incredibly talented Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder, it is great to collaborate with one of the best comedy writing teams in Jen Statsky, Lucia Aniello, and Paul W. Downs.

This soundtrack presents our character’s themes with story-based variations. And although they may at first seem quite opposite (Deborah on her way out, and Ava on her way up) they have so much more in common than we may at first perceive.
