1979. Sessions Payroll Management started with a two person office in Hollywood. From the beginning, our focus was background talent. First it was the musicians that bring the motion picture soundtrack to life. Next was extras production payroll with our first network television program in 1992. Over the next decade, Sessions added major studio projects to our cable and television client list. More recently, we gained a foothold in the growing online streaming programming space. We're over forty and looking pretty good.
