Music & Casting

ITV Studios Casting Team

Our casting team is split between our Manchester and Leeds sites and our key priority is to look after the casting and contracting of all artists on Coronation Street and Emmerdale. The team also oversees contracts for all drama made by ITV Studios and advises on equity-related engagements across the whole business.

ITV Studios Music team

Our music team is split into two teams - one in London looking after all non-scripted content and one in Manchester dealing with the scripted (drama and soaps) programmes. The team deals with all aspects of music, from clearances and reporting under the broadcasters' blanket agreements, to hiring musicians and negotiating composer deals. Almost all programmes contain music in some form, whether it’s specially composed, production (or library) music or use of commercial records from well-known artists and our music team oversees it all.
