Broad City is the latest show to license music from Opus Orange’s library. The second of the two tracks, “Take Your Time” can be heard in the episode “Bedbugs,” airing for the first time on Wednesday, Nov. 29th at 7:30pm EST / 10:30pm PST. In this episode #409 “a fancy new bag gives Abbi confidence during unemployment. Ilana and Jaimé deal with an inevitable New York City nightmare: bedbugs.” Previously licensed on October 25th for episode #406 was the single, “When I Look In Your Eyes.”
This will be Opus Orange’s second placement on the half-hour scripted series on Comedy Central adapted from the critically acclaimed web series created by and starring Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer as 20-something best friends who are trying to navigate life in New York, despite that their adventures always seem to lead down unexpected and bizarre paths. They have very little money, but they are survivors who aren’t afraid to throw themselves into sticky situations, no matter how messy the end results may be. Jacobson and Glazer both honed their comedy chops at New York’s Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. UCB co-founded Amy Poehler is an executive producer on the series and joins Fred Armisen, Rachel Dratch, Janeane Garofalo, Michelle Hurst, Jason Mantzoukas and Amy Sedaris, among others, as guest stars.

Did you know that Emoto composer Ryan Elder has been working alongside Whitney Avalon, Steve Gossett, and Michael Sullivan in producing the “Princess Rap Battle” comedy short? Each individual music video is already boasting views up to the multi-millions on Youtube – which is not so surprising to the generations of us, who were raised on Disney Princesses and storybook Fairy Tales, left perpetually wondering and weighing which character (protagonist? antagonist?) had really been dealt the worst hand turned ‘Happiest-Ever-After’.
Elder composed the music (but not the lyrics) for Cinderella vs Belle (ft. Sarah Michelle Gellar), Maleficent vs Daenerys (ft. Yvonne Strahovski), & Mrs Claus vs Mary Poppins – in addition to mixing and mastering the music of the entire series so far.
“It’s been super fun working with Whitney and the team on those. The positive response to them has been really exciting,” – Elder said of his experience working on the musical comedy short.
You can purchase the music to each “Princess Rap Battle” on iTunes (via Whitney Avalon) and find more of the “Princess Rap Battle” music videos, like the one featured below, on Youtube!
