I thought some might find this TV Week Article as interesting as I did.
Wow, $200,000 per episode!...As part of a larger effort to control escalating music budgets for its programming, the Disney-ABC TV Group has launched an initiative to discover and groom its own roster of homegrown-and adult-skewing-artists.
...At a time in which some TV shows now spend as much as $200,000 per episode on music, DATG's chief goal with Session Five-launched about three years ago-is to give its music-hungry showrunners a lower-cost yet creatively acceptable alternative to major label acts.
The artist series expands that mission, so that Session Five will now be in the business of grooming young musicians in the same manner TV studios nurture baby writers.
