Downtown Music Publishing and The Film Department (TFD) announced the formation of a new film music company and partnership, TFD Music. Through the partnership, Downtown Publishing will serve as the exclusive, worldwide administrator for the TFD Music copyrights and master recordings, and offer music supervision and soundtrack consulting services for motion pictures.

The first TFD pictures covered under the agreement are "The Rebound," starring Catherine Zeta-Jones (now in post-production) and "Law Abiding Citizen" starring Gerard Butler (now in pre-production).

Downtown Music Publishing is a division of Downtown Music, LLC. Their publishing roster includes nearly all artists signed to its sister label, Downtown Records, including Carla Bruni, Cold War Kids, Santogold, Spank Rock, Kid Sister and Mos Def.

The Film Department is an independent movie finance, production and international sales company founded by former Warner Independent Pictures and Miramax Films president Mark Gill and former Miramax Films executive VP and Yari Film Group COO Neil Sacker.
