There is one show on mainstream TV that is – surprisingly – a cool source for cool music.

‘Shameless’, a family drama around a dysfunctional Chicago working-class family, is using more music than many other TV shows, and they’re licensing it often directly from the Indie Artists who fit the social makeup of the show.

Sounds like a win-win-win situation: The show is getting more music on a budget, and the up and coming artists are actually getting some of the licensing fees, plus the exposure of having your music played in a cool TV show.

The music producer of the show recently did an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
