Twentieth Century Fox Television has tapped Jeremy Summers to lead studio’s music team as Executive Vice President of Music, it was announced today by Mark Pearson, Executive Vice President, Brand Management and Digital Media.

Summers will oversee the music on all shows produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Fox 21 Television Studios, working with showrunners to ensure that their creative vision is realized. His role will encompass helping to identify music talent, negotiating deals and hiring composers and music supervisors for pilots and series, among other responsibilities.

“With ‘Glee,’ ‘Empire’ and the upcoming ‘Star,’ our studio has been a leader in telling music-driven stories and a pioneer in the TV music business, and Jeremy’s hire gives an opportunity to build on that track record of success,” said Pearson. “His experience and creative instincts make him the perfect executive to lead this important area of our company going forward.”
