As television becomes more cinematic, the swelling of the music must follow suit. As a single episode now lives on by streaming, DVDs, and downloading, the artists must agree to their songs being used beyond comprehensible scope.

Listen as a composer, producer, music supervisor, and licensor discuss how the evolution of television is affecting the music we hear and how they continue to work together through the new challenges they now face.

The Casting Director's Production presented by The Casting Society
The right casting choice can make or break a series, change the landscape of a story, or launch a career. However, the Casting Director’s role is more complex than simply picking the right actor for the job.
