Some recent successes

Post by matto » Sat Apr 07, 2007 10:18 am

Looks like I haven't posted in here in a while...so here's a little update:On the TV side, recent placements include 3 on "Ugly Betty" (ABC), and one each on "Veronica Mars" (CW) "Prison Break" (FOX) and "Medium" (NBC);Cable TV included reality shows such as "Hogan Knows Best" (CMT/VH1), a ton of placements on MTV's "Tiara Girls" ( ), plus one each in the Lifetime original movies "Honeymoon With Mom" (love that title ) and "Carolina Moon".Oprah has also been good to me, as I've had about 90 placements in the 1st quarter of 2006 which just ended.As far as movies, I recently had a (short) placement in Chris Rock's "I Think I Love My Wife" (FOX Searchlight), and I have music in two movies opening this week: 2 songs in Ice Cube's "Are We Done Yet" (Columbia Pictures) - no screen credit though...grrr - and one in the new limited release indie comedy "The TV Set" (Think Films), starring Sigourney Weaver and David Duchovny.So...uhm...happy birthday to me All of this is a direct or indirect result of my Taxi membership...matto

Sounds like you probably don't get too many returns anymore, Matt.So will all those Oprah cues disappear from activity after a while, or will you have the oppotunity to pitch them to others when Oprah is through with them?Is Oprah the kind of show that does much in re-run business? Seems like shows that profile current events wouldn't have much success in re-runs.

It's a work for hire agreement. Once it goes to her it becomes "non-re-pitchable".Mazz
