Spirit Music Group has signed a worldwide administration deal with Emmy-winning TV and film composer Earle Hagen, who has written theme songs for classic shows like "The Andy Griffith Show," "The Dick Van Dyke Show," "Mod Squad" and "I Spy."

Spirit CEO Mark Fried says that under the deal, the publisher will represent more than 3,000 scores and themes in which Hagen holds rights. The publisher is expected to license re-recordings of some songs for various digital uses including master ringtones.

Hagen's career began after World War II when he joined 20th Century Fox where he orchestrated many films in the late 1940s and 1950s, including "Carousel," "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," "Daddy Long Legs" and "Flower Drum Song." He received an Oscar nomination as co-musical director of "Let's Make Love" in 1960.

Spirit is an independent publisher. It owns or manages more than 15,000 songs spanning seven decades of music.
