Watch Out: The Orchard Is Making TV Shows Now…


Sony recently bought up the rest of The Orchard.  Since that news surfaced, The Orchard has acquired royalty processing platform RoyaltyShare.

Now, The Orchard is in the original TV series business.  The company already handled film and TV distribution, but now they’re also funding and distributing original programming.

The new series is called The Jamz and is a sitcom about a fictional radio station. Kathy Najimy, David Pasquesi, and Michael Patrick Thornton will star. The show is currently in pre-production.

    Why do none of Nina Ulloa’s stories seem to come with any links to original sources?

      Variety was the only publication that had covered prior. How is it too late if no one is talking about it? Ask the Orchard why they waited so long to push the release. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      Or fucking mash? They should make a comedy series about the elephant man.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if the Orchard would have a paragraph in their TV deals that the only music or at least a significant percentage of it, that can be used in their productions MUST come from Orchard distributed labels? Because right now, with its take over by a major (SONY), the Orchard is no longer an independent distributor. But if that clause was in there TV agreements, I would advise my clients to think twice before moving their label to a true independent distributor. Then again, some of my clients may want to be with a major for distribution. Just a thought.
