Description

Company that grew from Steve Gottlieb's Tee Vee Toons record label and its surprise success with the original Television's Greatest Hits album. TVT would release seven more volumes in the popular TV theme song compilation series in addition to 30+ movie and TV soundtrack albums.

TVT also expanded into signing artists as diverse as Shona Laing, Nine Inch Nails, Jimmy Page, Ying Yang Twins, Lil Jon, Aphex Twin, KMFDM and Snoop Dogg.

TVT acquired Wax Trax! Records in 1992, putting it at the forefront of the industrial music scene. It also created music publishing and distribution units.

After costly legal disputes involving Ja Rule (over contractual obligations) and Slip-N-Slide Records over the rights to early material by Pitbull, the label filed for bankruptcy in 2007. TVT's assets, excluding the music publishing unit (which Gottlieb still owns), were awarded to UK-based digital music distributor The Orchard by a New York bankruptcy judge in June 2008.
