Production/writing team inks co-pub deal.

Rondor Music has forged a co-publishing agreement with production/songwriting team the Underdogs.

The L.A.-based duo (Harvey Mason Jr. and Damon Thomas) have written material for Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, Pink, Mariah Carey and Luther Vandross. The pair last year started a label, Underdog Entertainment, with distribution by J Records.

Rondor, which is a division of Universal Music Group, says the Underdogs aim to find and develop new songwriters.
