Production music is a vital part of the television industry. And the songs heard in the background, during scene transitions, and in the opening and closing credits can generate significant royalty payments. This is your chance to collect royalties for a catalog of production music that has generated $9,075 in the last four quarters.

This catalog's earnings are led by placements in the Emmy-nominated TV show New Girl. New Girl first aired on Fox in 2011. In 2013 Fox inked a deal with Netflix for exclusive US streaming rights, and in 2015 TBS and MTV acquired basic cable syndication rights. When you look at the raw financial data, you'll notice that New Girl has been a consistent source of revenue, generating royalties for this catalog in every quarter since Q1 2014. VH1's reality show Black Ink Crew has been another main source of income and the 5th season of the show just premiered in January of this year. Not only have these shows regularly paid royalties, both have seen an increase in the last 12 months over the previous year: New Girl increasing 57% and Black Ink Crew 139%!

This 399-track catalog has been used in over 500 television shows since 2014. And now you can earn money every time an episode of New Girl that uses one of these tracks airs on TV or is streamed on Netflix. Not only that, but this catalog is actively being pitched by publishers and production agencies. When they find placements for these tracks in new shows, you'll earn new royalties.

What is being sold?

100% of the seller's interest in the songwriter's share of public performance royalties attributable to the seller's catalog of musical works administered by ASCAP. See the “Documents” tab for a full track list.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Possession of the songwriter’s portion of this asset must be taken via a trust, which is required due to ASCAP’s assignment policy. Please see the Post-Auction Process tab for further information.

How does this asset make money?

Every time a network airs a television show that uses any of the songs in this catalog the asset generates a public performance royalty. This means every time an episode of “New Girl,” or any other show, uses a song from this catalog and airs on television, you earn money. ASCAP makes payments quarterly. The next ASCAP domestic royalties payment is scheduled for April 2017.
