Jacob Yoffee (MM '11) Scores ABC's "The Wonder Years"


Screen Scoring alum Jacob Yoffee has been signed as the composer for the ABC reboot of the popular 1980s series The Wonder Years. The original series chronicled Kevin Arnold’s (Fred Savage) teenage years, growing up in the midst of the turbulent late 60s and early 70s. The ABC reboot, now directed by Fred Savage, shifts focus — from an 80s suburban middle-class white family living in Anytown, USA, to a 60s Black family living in Montgomery, Alabama. The show will maintain its format of narrations by a future version of its main character (Don Cheadle), but will now spotlight reminiscences and the tribulations of coming of age in the 60s amidst discrimination in the deep south. The series will premiere on September 22, 2021.
