Huge Music picks up TV series briefs

WCRS's in-house music division, Huge Music, has picked up its first two standalone pieces of business.

Huge Music was launched in November last year as a department specialising in sourcing and licensing music for WCRS ads.

However, the division has successfully pitched to supervise music on the Channel 4 TV series Sugar Rush and a new BBC TV drama called Synchronicity.

Huge Music, which is run by the former EMI promotions and licensing manager Fiona McBlane, will select and clear 90 tracks for Sugar Rush and 60 tracks for Synchronicity.

The tracks cover everything from music playing in the background in bars and cafes to pieces used to soundtrack key dramatic moments.

Before joining WCRS, McBlane worked for eight years at EMI, where she licensed tracks including Millennium by Robbie Williams for Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R's Lloyds TSB work and The Prodigy's Under My Wheels for WCRS's BMW spot.
