The mini-series Philip Gun P.I. is created, directed and produced by Allan Gutheim. As for the music, Allan is collaborating with his wife Maria. To give the right feeling of a private investigator living in the present, but inspired by the 1930s detectives, Allan and Maria chose to compose a mix of electronic music and traditional jazz music.

Philip Gun is a cool private investigator, walking around in trenchcoat and hat. In an unspecified city, Philip Gun and his assistant Lin Henri solve cases, some that even The National Security Agency can't handle. Allan and Maria themselves are playing these characters. A big part of the Philip Gun concept is the mix of thrill, humor, action and drama. Cinematic as well as musical.

The series core is the music, which sets the mood and enhances each scene. For every episode, about ten minutes each, new music was recorded, but with recurring themes. Of course, Philip Gun got his own musical theme. There are no dialogues, instead the plot is moved forward and explained by the main character's narrator voice.

"Philip Gun P.I. is the action packed mini-series by Swedish music composer Allan Gutheim. From a storytelling standpoint, the simplistic approach helps to guide the audiences from all the stages of the film until the climax successfully. This Neo-Noir aesthetic is praised by the stylistic choices of the production design department. The actors deliver great performances and manage their material in great fashion. By the pacing and in general structure of the project, the audience will be viewing on the edge of its seat. We are very optimistic and curious to see what's next for director Allan Gutheim."
