The most recent and currently airing title is “Teal Grey Sky.” This new theme song, as well as the previous theme “All That Is Good,” are both included in this catalog. “Teal Grey Sky” is seeing growth of 67% over the past four quarters, as royalties begin to come in for its repeated use.

The series launched in 1978 and currently airs in more than 50 languages worldwide. In the United States, the program is broadcast on 300 television stations and several satellite networks including The Inspiration Network (INSP) and Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). Music from this catalog is used in various lengths, with a 60- and 30-minute version, both of which are showing royalty growth.

Key Drivers

Theme music is the audio played at the outset of any given show. It differs from typical production music, because a theme song plays consistently and more often than a background/transition music. There are many variations of the theme songs in this collection. This catalog also features cues or more traditional production music in the In Touch franchise as well.
