WarnerMedia Discovery—the new media company created by the April merger of AT&T’s WarnerMedia and Discovery, Inc.—has announced a new program through its Access division that aims to provide opportunities in music supervision to people from historically underrepresented communities.  

The Warner Bros. Discovery Access Music Supervisor Program offers participants access to training and experience in TV and film music supervision, covering topics such as production, IP management, publishing, soundtracks, negotiations, record labels, research, clearance and licensing. After classes are completed, participants get to shadow a Warner Bros. Discovery music supervisor on a show or feature film with HBO, HBO Max, WBTV or Warner Bros. Pictures. Applications for the six-month program open today (June 21). Access programs have been founded in several of the company’s markets, including Post Production, Writers & Producers, Directors, Animation and Comics, Games, and more. 

Last week the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) announced that 75 percent of film and television music supervisors had signed authorization cards to join the union, seeking to fight discrimination and pay disparities, access to healthcare and retirement benefits, and the authority to negotiate with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). The AMPTP has not voluntarily recognized the union.
