To set the mood for the sultry spy series, executive producer Simon Cornwell worked with creative director Patrick Clair (Marvel’s Daredevil, The Man in the High Castle) on creating the main title sequence. To create it, Cornwell and Clair’s team worked on combining “two themes—the conspicuous beauty of luxury and the destructive threat of weaponry—into a single, beautiful sequence that would draw the audience into the world that we were creating,” says Cornwell.

And the combination of seductive and destructive (diamonds and champagne bubbles become interchangeable with bombs and bullets), paired with a haunting score by Victor Reyes, definitely brings to mind some of the iconic James Bond title sequences.
