The most talked about Netflix Regency drama to skyrocket our screens, across the nation. It’s steamy, witty and at times, heart-wrenching to watch. But there’s a reason why this show immediately felt warmly familiar from the offset, despite being set in the Georgian era of the 1800s – and that was due to none other than Musical Director, Kris Bowers. Bowers cleverly curated a modern-day pop playlist, which was transformed seamlessly into an array of classical pieces, by The Vitamin String Quartet. Featuring Ariana Grande, Maroon 5 and Shawn Mendes, Billie Eilish, Celeste and Taylor Swift – Bowers’ modern-day twist on this 18th century series, is what truly tied this show together as the heartfelt, nostalgic, intimate and irreverent piece of binge-worthy television, that we came to know and love so much.
Unlike any other series we’ve seen before, Sweet Tooth is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a terrible viral outbreak causes an entire generation of children to mutate into hybrids – part human, part animals.
