Corra Group is ramping up to meet the production growth in the entertainment industry. According to a recent article in Bloomberg, there are more television shows being produced now than ever before in America. As per the article, “The number of scripted TV shows released in the U.S. swelled to a new high in 2017, reflecting the growing efforts of Netflix, Amazon and YouTube to steal viewers and advertisers from traditional networks.”

“Corra Group is headquartered in El Segundo, CA and services entertainment, media, and advertising agencies both domestically and globally,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. We offer several complete packages for background checks for the entertainment industry and can customize a package to fit the needs of any television, film, or advertising entity.

“We conduct background checks for reality shows, commercial campaigns, new media and technology launches, and for in-house hiring of production crews, talent, and executives receiving offers for full time employment,” said Basichis. “As a hands on background screening service, we first like to discuss with our clients their objectives and if there are any mandates resulting from their branded clients, television or film studios, or any contractual requirements. Corra Group offers every type of background check, both domestically and internationally, so we can easily meet any screening demands.”

Basichis pointed out as the world has gone digital so has the entertainment and media industries. He noted sometimes different personnel are required for different platforms and once the personnel has been decided it is necessary to run the types of background checks that best protect the client.

Our clients can be responsible for production for reality and scripted shows that are distributed on global levels,” said Basichis. Often our clients are conducting focus groups or are producing high quality commercials for some of the biggest brands in the Fortune 500. Or it’s a smaller, regional shoot. It doesn’t matter.

Basichis offered that Corra Group will look at each production and offer suggestions as to the best background checks that will meet our clients needs. Sometimes Corra Group will just conduct criminal record checks. Other times it runs the candidate’s motor vehicle records report, or MVR. Increasingly, he noted, the service is conducting social media searches on both talent and job applicants.

“As this business continues to expand and as entertainment and advertising content finds new delivery systems and different platforms, production will continue its unprecedented growth” said Basichis. “Corra Group is based in Hollywood. We are familiar with the business. We move to stay ahead of the curve and make sure that our clients get what they need.”

BACKGROUND: Corra operates as Corra Group and Corra Global Research and specializes in employment screening and corporate research and investigation. It is one of the few companies that will answer the phone. You can review the website at
