Welcome, Livi!


Introducing, Livi Quiroz, Label Manager, Mexico

Hi crew, I’m Livi; enthusiastic, curious and a loud laugher. I am Mexican by nature, a food lover by experience, and I’m very happy to join this amazing family as Label Manager at The Orchard Mexico’s office.

Since I was a child, my father taught me to appreciate and love any kind of music. It wasn’t until I finished my degree in Design and Visual Communication at UNAM and was working as a concert photographer that I’ve discovered I could actually dedicate my life to music. At that time, I wasn’t sure how to make it happen, so I started began working as a graphic designer.

The Many Sounds Of ‘Stranger Things’


The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling, and the inevitable approach of creepy and mysterious has begun. In recent years, horror and science fiction has kicked into high gear in an formerly unlikely setting, television. Themes captured in shows like, American Horror Story and Bates Motel, were previously only depicted in cinema and definitely unheard of on cable due to their twisted and often graphic nature. Preceded only by the popularity of classics such as The Twilight Zone or Buffy, recent supernatural thrillers have developed into a television phenomena, breaking through the predictability of sitcoms, crime or hospital dramas we have grown so familiar. Coming back for a second and highly anticipated season, Stranger Things will be available Friday, October 27th, on Netflix. And we’ll tell you why The Orchard is so excited.

Welcome, Mike M.!


Mike MilizzoIntroducing Mike Milizzo, Video Engineer, Film

My name is Michael Milizzo, but you can call me Mike. I recently joined The Orchard as a Video Engineer in the Film department.

I graduated from NYU with a BFA in film/television and the dream of becoming a studio executive. Nevertheless, my first job out of school was Story Assistant on The Real Housewives of Long Island. Alas, the world was deprived of the show due to cast members leaving, and it was rebranded as Secrets and Wives which lasted one season.
