WILL JAXX LANDS TV PLACEMENT W/ ABC
APRIL 2020

WILL JAXX bagged another  huge win for 2020. The song “Keep The Devil Off” featuring Big KRIT was featured on an episode of “For Life” a primetime TV series on ABC. The dramatic series is based on the true life story of a prisoner who becomes a lawyer  while in prison and litigates cases for other inmates, while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn't commit.  "Keep The Devil Off" was used during an epic scene where the main character, Aaron Wallace, is leaving the prison on the prison bus and traveling to the NYC Courthouse where he will plead his case for a retrial. The song adds energy and weight to the moment and really made the scene come alive. Mr. JAXX had this to say about the opportunity, “I'm truly humbled that ABC chose our work to contribute to the portrayal of such a noble struggle. Thank you @abc for featuring “Keep The Devil Off" in such a pivotal scene". With the quality of his catalogue, one can only hope for more placements for this King of the Slide.
