WHY: BMI’s composers, such as the legendary John Williams and Mike Post, contribute to billions of dollars in box office receipts, with film scores in many of the year’s top films as well as highest rated TV series. The highest-rated series and specials on television feature the scores of BMI composers, who craft the theme and/or background music for nearly three-quarters of all primetime network programs. In addition to Comic-Con, BMI partners with other events to enhance the role of music in film, television and video games.
