Bid on a catalog of production music that earns an average of $883 a quarter. This music has been used in over 270 TV shows and on networks like Bravo, VH1, and MTV. In the last 12 months, this catalog earned $3,992 in royalties.

Production music is the background or transition music you hear during shows and commercials on TV or the radio. You can’t turn on the TV for more than 30 seconds without hearing some sort of production music. Tracks in this catalog have been used in popular shows such as Say Yes to the Dress and Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami. These aren't just one-off placements, both of these shows have been consistent sources of income for this catalog earning royalties every quarter since 2013.

Also, many of the tracks in this catalog are licensed by publishers who have an incentive to get placements for these tracks. The publishers make money whenever these songs get placed in television programming. This means you will also benefit ... because when new placements are found for any of these songs, you will earn additional public performance royalties!

What is being sold?

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

How does this asset make money?

Every time a network airs a television show that uses any of the songs in this catalog, a public performance royalty is generated. This means every time an episode of Say Yes to the Dress, or any other show, uses a song from this catalog and airs on television you will earn money.
