ROB LOOS

Rob Loos serves as President of zing productions inc., but what that really means is that he helps to guide the creative approach to all of our television, film, and direct-to-digital projects -- as a writer, producer or director, or many times as a "hyphenate" -- combining two or more of those roles.


zing productions inc.

zing does certain projects on its own, but many times it joins forces with larger studios, networks, distributors, and financiers to bring bigger ideas to life. Sometimes those are joint ventures or limited liability corporations (LLC) ... other times they are production arrangements. zing is committed to finding the best business structure to fit the project's needs.


One of zing's longest joint ventures was with George Taweel Productions, Inc. (GTP) -- for many years zing and GTP were co-founders of TLC Entertainment. An asterisk (*) notes many of the productions below where Loos and Taweel, as joint-venture partners, shared credits. TLC dissolved in 2009 with partners retaining various projects.


storytelling

zing's area of focus is all about storytelling -- some projects venture squarely into the "family" arena,  other projects are dramatic, adventurous, or even romantic -- we are in the business of entertaining people with captivating storytelling.  That starts with compelling writing which lays the groundwork for exceptional productions.


As you can see from our credits, we do have eclectic taste -- which we see as an asset in an ever-changing world.
