Cutting Edge expands into TV with ‘Parade’s End’ financing

Music services company will release soundtrack on Varese Sarabande

Cutting Edge Group has completed a financing deal for five-part Brit miniseries “Parade’s End” as CEG continues its expansion into TV funding.

“Parade’s End,” set to debut Tuesday debut on HBO, was produced by Mammoth Screen and Anchorage Entertainment with Susanna White directing. Produced by David Parfitt and Selwyn Roberts, the mini stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hall with Tom Stoppard adapting Ford Madox Ford’s quartet of novels.

As part of the financing deal, CEG’s newly acquired soundtrack label Varese Sarabande Records will release Dirk Brosse’s score in the United States. The soundtrack was produced by Maggie Rodford through CEG’s music representation arm Air-Edel.

CEG specializes as a music services provider via investing cash for scoring, clearances and music supervision in film and TV projects, then recoups from such sources as soundtrack and sheet-music sales along with performance royalties. It has invested in NBC’s “The Firm” along with “The King’s Speech,” “Drive,” “Looper” and “End of Watch.”

CEG and Wood Creek Capital acquired Varese Sarabande in January with the aim of becoming a leader in film music services.

“‘Parade’s End’ is an incredible piece of television with global appeal,” said CEG topper Philip Moross. “Everything we do at CEG is geared towards working with the sort of talent this series has attracted, and we want to continue in the television space.”

Moross is aiming to expand the number of Varese Sarabande soundtrack releases from 40 to about 65 annually. The label recently released the Thomas Newman score to “Side Effects” and plans to release the score to comedy-drama “Writers.”

Varese Sarabande is producing Saturday’s Hollywood film music concert at the Venetian Macau Resort, billed as the first such event in China. The event, “Hollywood Love Stories — Great Romantic Film Music,” will be performed by the Macau Orchestra and conducted by Lu Jia with performances by U.S. flutist Sara Andon and Italian violinist Paolo Morena.

Music of American composers Jerry Goldsmith, Alex North, John Williams, Dave Grusin, Bernard Herrmann, Michael Kamen, James Horner and Henry Mancini will be included along with England’s John Barry, France’s Georges Delerue, Scotland’s Patrick Doyle and Craig Armstrong, Italy’s Nino Rota and Hungary’s Miklos Rozsa.
