Up for auction is the theme song, “We Run LA” from the popular reality TV show, Shahs of Sunset, which continues to receive regular airtime on the Bravo! channel.

Shahs of Sunset first aired on Bravo in 2012 and is currently on season six. With 82 episodes and counting, “We Run LA” is featured in all episodes as the opening theme. Season seven is set to premiere on Aug. 2, 2018. As the winning bidder, you will benefit from the show’s continued syndication.

Currently, Shahs of Sunset drives the earnings for “We Run LA” and this asset. That means the song’s royalties are directly related to Shahs of Sunset playing on TV or via on-demand streaming.

It's worth noting that “We Run LA” was released in 2009. Prior to the first episode of Shahs Of Sunset, royalties for this track were influenced heavily by radio plays. In fact, in 2009, the first year this song earned, royalties were driven primarily by radio.

Key Drivers

Theme Music. Theme music is the audio played at the outset of any given show. It differs from background music on TV because a theme song generally plays in every episode. This song’s use as the Theme in Shahs of Sunset, contributes to nearly 99% of this catalog's earnings in the last 12 months.

Since “We Run LA” is used during the introduction of every episode of Shahs of Sunset, you have the opportunity to earn royalties every time the show airs on TV or is streamed on-demand through Bravo TV online. It's worth noting that TV/Film royalties for this catalog are consistent with the television series schedule. With a new season airing each fall, the winning bidder will benefit from the addition of new episodes which feature the theme song and reruns of old episodes.
