This auction features a collection of production music used in sports programming and reality TV series. Over the last four quarters, this catalog produced $9,523 in royalties.

This production catalog's top-placements span a variety of networks and programs, from Fox Sports to the CBS’ popular soap opera, Young And The Restless. The series itself has the eighth-highest episode count among all TV programs in the world. This collection of works features tracks from the equally recognizable soap opera, General Hospital. Both series remain in production. Anytime they air, you earn.

Featured placements through Fox Sports include NHL Hockey, NASCAR, Major League Baseball and more. These works are actively being placed across the popular sports network and have collected royalties both domestically and internationally.

Production music is a vital part of the TV and radio industry. In fact, the Production Music Association’s Joe Saba called it a “$1 billion global industry hidden in plain sight.” Right now, demand for this type of music is at an all-time high.

Key Drivers

Many of these works benefit from management by Heavy Hitters Music. Check out the "media" tab to listen to some of the works in these libraries.

Whenever production groups are creating new content — a TV program, commercial or film — they look for music within vast production music libraries, like Heavy Hitters. If music from this catalog is used in future series/shows and those shows air on TV, you will earn royalties for those performances. Essentially, as the winner of this auction, you will benefit from these songs being part of a production library, without having to work the music yourself.

How does this asset make money?
