It Takes a Village to Score a Show

In the fast-paced world of TV Production, there are many key creative decision makers involved in crafting the score for the show, and many different deal structures that come into play. This collaborative effort includes Producers, Editors, Composers, Music Supervisors, Music Libraries and Music Production Houses. The key to getting your music placed or getting hired to write a score will depend not only on your talent or the quality of the music you represent, but also on your ability to understand and navigate this unique set of relationships.
