At iTunes, I looked after classical music for the whole world, but in the US, I also took care of soundtracks and jazz.

When Fox and Sony had finished the pilot for Glee, they came to Cupertino to talk about ways we could work together on the show and its soundtrack.

Glee became the #1 TV show in America, and the first season’s performances generated more than $4m in revenue.
