Acquisition #7: Reality TV Placements
Production Libraries. Production music is a vital part of the TV & radio industry. In fact, Production Music Association's Joe Saba called it a "$1 billion global industry hidden in plain sight." Right now, demand for music in TV shows, films, & commercials is tremendous. To meet their needs for all these uses, brands and production houses often turn to production music libraries like Bunim-Murray and Warner/Chappell, to find music more efficiently and cost effectively than licensing commercial music. Songs in this catalog are part of the production libraries Bunim-Murray, Warner/Chappell, and Jingle Punks. If additional placements are found for this music, you will earn royalties without having to do any of the work!
Bunim/Murray is a production house behind such reality TV successes as Keeping Up With The Kardashians, The Real World, Total Divas and Life of Kylie. Whenever they create an episode, they pull music from their vast production music libraries to use in the program.
