Universal Publishing Production Music has partnered with ScreenHits for the TV and film streaming platform’s second annual Pilot Showcase initiative.

The event will showcase 50 TV pilots from over 500 entries later this year, with the winner funded to create a full series. Through the UPPM partnership, entrants will have access to the company’s library of music for use in their shows.

“The state of television production and distribution is changing at an incredible speed”, says ScreenHits CEO Rose Adkins. “There is content out in the world that has value and we believe, along with UPPM, that giving a pilot a home and pickup is important in our untethered viewing worlds. We partnered with UPPM because of their great music catalogue crafted specifically for media use as well as their dedication in providing quality music by working with hugely talented artists and composers around the globe”.

UPPM UK GM John Clifford adds: “It is our intent to support the great composers we work with, all of whom are the backbone of our exceptional music catalogue and with how ScreenHits support our great composers by promoting their music via the pilot showcase. By working so closely with them, we have a great opportunity to match the best music with the TV content that is being created”.
