This theme is by ABC’s friends at DreamArtists Music. The package was commissioned for 20/20’s relaunch in October of 2010. The theme reflects the “darker, more dramatic” approach ABC had taken with the popular news program. You might also hear hints of the 2009 theme, also by DreamArtists Music, that became the closing theme to the broadcast.
