Writer-director Judd Apatow will participate in a panel discussion at the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film and TV Music Conference on Oct. 25 at the W Hotel in Hollywood.
The panel will look at the role music has played in Apatow’s work, from the popular cult TV show Freaks and Geeks, which he created, to such projects as the box-office hit Bridesmaids and HBO’s Girls to his upcoming film This Is 40, which revisits the characters from the 2007 comedy Knocked Up.
Joining Apatow will be two of his longtime collaborators, composer Mike Andrews and music supervisor Manish Raval, as well as legendary British rocker Graham Parker, who has a key role in This Is 40. Parker and his band The Rumour have reunited and will release their first album in 31 years on Nov. 20.
The Hollywood Reporter’s senior writer Lacey Rose will moderate. For more information, go to www.billboardevents.com.
