Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A ten-time Emmy-winner, Bruce Broughton has worked extensively, but not exclusively, in television. This prolific composer, a native of Los Angeles, began his career as a music supervisor at CBS just after his graduation from USC. He remained with the network for a decade, providing underscoring to such series as "Gunsmoke," "Hawaii Five-O" and "Dallas". After his tenure at CBS, Broughton segued to the big screen first garnering attention with his Oscar-nominated score to Lawrence Kasdan's "Silverado" and later with his complex and eclectic work on "Young Sherlock Holmes" (both 1985). He has since provided appropriate background music for such films as "The Presidio" (1988), the animated short "Rollercoaster Rabbit" (1990), "Stay Tuned" (1992), "Tombstone" (1993) and "A Simple Wish" (1997). For the small screen, Broughton wrote the themes for the ABC series "Dinosaurs" (1992) and "JAG" (NBC, 1995-96; CBS, 1997-2005).
