How would I go about obtaining licensing/permission to use soundbites from a no-longer-running major network show in an iPhone application?

Or even so, what department would I approach to make an official application for the now-defunct show? A search of the app store yields no results for neither the show name nor the main character's name.
On the other hand, if I created an unauthorized version, would the approval process immediately shoot me down? I'd prefer to take the high road in this case and obtain permission, or even partner with the network, rather than get denied by Apple on account of licensing issues.
