While Spring is a time of new beginnings, inevitably, in the world of network television, it is often a season of finality. And while a lot of this feeling comes from programming being cancelled due to poor ratings, every couple of years we bid farewell to characters that have endeared themsleves to the American public and whose stories have dominated conversations from water-coolers to family dinner tables.
Last night, NBC turned out the lights on “The Office,” ending a nine-season run as one of the network’s most consistently funny (and syndicated) shows, and The Orchard’s sync department played an instrumental role in helping wrap up one of the most bizarre love stories of a generation — literally.
As Angela is carried down the aisle, you may have recognized Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child of Mine” in the background. That instrumental, performed by The Instrumental Brothers, was licensed courtesy of our label, Shamrock-n-Roll. We’re thrilled to have played a role in this farewell and look forward to seeing what’s next for the many stars that made this ensemble cast great.
So was this an iconic television moment? A few seasons too late? The death of network television? Let us know what you think in the comments!
