Todd Zing and Irish Ann Rivera are a prolific, optioned, intercontinental writing team that specializes in character driven Sci-Fi Dramas - both TV pilots and feature films. Cut from the same cloth as JJ and Joss, we're highly imaginative storytellers with an exceptional work ethic. Our love for the creative process is apparent in each of our endeavors and we greatly enjoy collaborating with highly talented individuals. We're both fascinated by ancient mysteries, the human mind's infinite potential and seemingly impossible feats accomplished through tenacity and ingenuity. In addition to screenwriting, we're savvy investors always on the hunt for an exciting project to back.
Some of our favorite TV shows and films include Lost, Manifest, The Black List, Game of Thrones, The 100, Brooklyn 99, Chernobyl, The Matrix, Batman Begins, Inception, Jumanji, Pan's Labyrinth, Annihilation, Edge of Tomorrow... We'll add more soon. :)
Unique traits: Though Irish and Todd are from opposite ends of the globe, they share oddly similar beliefs and see eye to eye on most issues, especially the importance of epic world building, deep character development and giving protagonists an intriguing mystery to solve.
