Drama is the perfect genre for listening to a story, whether it’s a family drama, a romance, a mystery or a dark comedy.
But when you add to that the music genre of jazz, it’s no wonder that the genre has taken off.
“When we started writing the drama series and the first season, we had to figure out a lot of the genre’s music.
We looked at the genres and tried to figure it out, but we weren’t even aware of it,” says Pauline Marjorie.
The first season of The Vikings, which premieres Monday, sees Ragnar and the Vikings embark on a journey to explore their heritage and reconnect with their lost family, following the death of their mother and the discovery of their father.
They return to the city of Myre, where they find the family of their ancestors, but their journey doesn’t end there.
“It’s not just a story of a family.
It’s also about a family of the future,” says Marjories showrunner Janelle Sylvester.
“I always thought, ‘This is the way music should work.’ “
If you can imagine an artist creating a music and you have a couple of different people that come in, you know that’s a great place to start,” she says.
The show also explores how our relationships with our ancestors and the relationship between Vikings and humans have shaped our history and our cultures, which is something the show is exploring through musical performances. “
But the journey doesn´t stop there.
“And then the characters in the show have a story to tell, and I think that story is really important.” “
We have a lot more of an open dialogue and dialogue in terms of the way that we relate to each other, and we try to figure how we can use that dialogue to help us be better people,” says Sylvesters.

For the show’s second season, the Vikings are in a world where their relationship with the dead and the return of their dead mother has led to a war.
“There is no reason why it couldn’t be a world in which they have to rebuild a new society, or at least be at peace with the world,” says executive producer and co-creator, Eric Furlong.
Music is just one element of the show that plays a role. “
With the show being so much about family, I wanted to bring that back and to create a place where they would be able to go, and where they could just be part of the family again.”

The series is also using the world of musical instruments to bring out the voices of those in the characters, creating a musical accompaniment to the drama scenes.
“A lot of it is just to create an environment where the characters can be themselves, but it is also to give them that presence and that energy to the performances,” says Furlongs showrunner.
“That’s been something that I think we’ve learned a bit more about, and hopefully this year will bring that to the forefront again.” “
As the show has grown, we have really enjoyed the opportunity to expand the scope of what we can do with our instruments and we have learned a lot about how to work with them,” he adds.
