t.v. & film

Cory's first opportunity in film came in 1986 when director Savage Steve Holland asked Cory to write the music for his upcoming Warner Bros. cult classic “One Crazy Summer” starring Demi Moore and John Cusack.   Upon completing OCS, Cory was hired to write the music for the critically acclaimed ABC series “Max Headroom”  Since then he’s written countless themes and underscore for some of TV’s most popular shows (see credits) including Baywatch, Flipper, Days Of Our Lives, Diagnosis Murder, Disney’s Kim Possible and Universal’s “Land Before Time”. 


“The big difference between making records and writing for episodic TV is time.  When I first started making records, we had ample time between albums, perhaps up to 12 to 18 months or more, however in the world of episodic Television you’re lucky to get 4 to 5 days from the start to finish of each episode.  Efficiency is everything on all levels and it’s imperative under difficult time restraints…that and getting used to no sleep!”

- Cory Lerios


“These days, due to the amazing advances in technology available to composers, songwriters and producers, there is really no limit to what a creative person can achieve.  Whether writing a theme, underscore or collaborating with other talented songwriters, for Cory Lerios any given day in his state of the art studio is truly a creative experience! Cory also continues to tour with Pablo Cruise when he’s not in the studio writing and continues to grow Lerico Entertainment his Southern California based production company!
