New York, NY – December 4, 2018 – The just released second season of hit period comedy series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel—featuring a housewife in 1958 New York who discovers her talent for stand-up comedy—provides a historically accurate look at a much-celebrated era of America’s greatest city. The portrayal couldn’t live up to its own high standards without the indelible music of the time and producers relied heavily on the well-known catalog currently owned and controlled by Concord Music Publishing.
With songs such as Irving Berlin’s “Cheek To Cheek,” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Younger Than Springtime” and “Shall We Dance?”, Concord Music Publishing’s catalog features over 390,000 copyrighted works, spanning all musical genres and containing many of the world’s most celebrated compositions.
“We are thankful to be able to work closely with the show’s music supervisor, Robin Urdang, to pair these iconic compositions with larger than life characters and stories which embody the essence of New York City in the 1950’s,” says Brooke Primont, SVP Synchronization, Concord Music Publishing North America.
