The production music included in this listing is utilized in Emmy-winning series Born This Way, long-running soap opera, Young and the Restless and other hit reality programs. These programs can be viewed on many services including A&E, CBS, Bravo, Hulu, Amazon, Netflix and more.

The Emmy-winning series Born This Way is the top-earning program in this listing representing 21% of earnings over the last 12 months. This program airs on A&E, Lifetime, Freeform, and streams on Hulu and Amazon. The composer of this catalog is the head composer for the series Born This Way. This means the music receives lengthier placements than typical placements made by a music library. The majority of background music utilized in each episode of Born This Way is included in this listing. New episodes of Born This Way premiere on August 15, 2018, and you have the opportunity to earn on any of this listing’s music reused in new episodes and reruns of the prior 27 episodes.

Also included is music from CBS’ library consistently placed in the soap opera The Young and the Restless.  In June 2017, The Young and the Restless was renewed for three additional years and you will have the opportunity to earn on new episodes that use music from this listing.

Other top programs with consistently rerunning episodes are Real Housewives of Orange County, Skin Wars, and Hollywood Medium.

Key Drivers

Production Libraries. Production music is a vital part of the TV & radio industry. In fact, Production Music Association's Joe Saba called it a "$1 billion global industry hidden in plain sight." Right now, demand for music in TV shows, films, & commercials is tremendous. To meet their needs for all these uses, brands and production houses often turn to production music libraries like Megatrax, Signature Tracks, and Jingle Punks, to find music more efficiently and cost-effectively than licensing commercial music. Songs in this catalog are part of the production libraries at CBS, Strike Audio, Grammascope, Megatrax, Signature Tracks and Jingle Punks. If additional placements are found for this music, you will earn royalties without having to do any of the work!
