"“We offer several background screening packages for the entertainment and media industry,” said Gordon Basichis, Corra Group Co-Founder. "We also can customize packages so we are addressing the specific needs of any production or ad campaign."

Corra Group is increasing its resources to meet the demands of the autumn production season for the entertainment and media industry. Typically, television production companies and advertising agencies, especially, will start their development for the forthcoming broadcast seasons or for various advertising campaigns.

“This is one of the times of the year when film, television, new media, and advertising agencies contact us for background checks that are relevant to their industries,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “The production houses are preparing their reality shows, especially, and the advertising agencies are interviewing talent for major television, radio, and digital commercials. Let’s face it, the last thing they need is a nut job on one of their shows. And I don’t say this to be glib. It has actually happened before.

“We are discussing with current clients and new prospects what they see as their background searching needs for the coming season. Since I have a show business background, I am always happy to talk with ad and production people. But Corra Group is making sure its newer employees are trained in the particulars of the entertainment and advertising industries.”

Basichis pointed out with Corra Group headquartered in El Segundo, it naturally has entreaties from production houses in Hollywood. He noted they also have clients, in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Miami.

“Recently, we provided background checks to production companies in the United Kingdom,” said Basichis. “Our main contact there told us they had other projects in pre-production and are preparing them for the new fall season.”

Basichis explained that with show business and advertising, there is no one size fits all for background searches. Each medium may have special needs, and each projection needs a particular entertainment package of background checks.

“We offer several background screening packages for the entertainment and media industry,” said Basichis. We also can customize packages so we are addressing the specific needs of any production or ad campaign. And then, of course, we offer comprehensive employment screening packages for in-house hires.

“Things have changed a great deal since I was immersed in the entertainment industry,” said Basichis. “In today’s world, production is year around. Even so, film and television production seems to be more intense in the spring and autumn. The same is true with commercial campaigns. Right now ad agencies are preparing campaigns for the holiday season and for that little event we all know as the Super Bowl. Corra Group sees a very busy season ahead of it.”
