The music supervisors behind Insecure, The Lego Movie, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead on how they pick the perfect tracks.
The magic of the marriage between a track and a scene on screen is undeniable. It can be the difference between ephemeral enjoyment and a moment so impactful it launches a song from obscurity into the collective consciousness, or gives an entirely new understanding to a well-known favorite. Today’s Peak Time is dedicated to the people responsible for designing these instances, the music supervisors. Guest host Harley Brown will speak with two players in the game, creative matchmakers who navigate a vast sea of potential songs in search of that perfect one. She’ll first speak with Thomas Golubić, in charge of enhancing the bleak moods of shows such as Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead, followed by Kier Lehman, who’s tasked with repping millennial existentialism on HBO’s Insecure.
