TAKE BACK THE NIGHT
Rob Forman's first memory is of Princess Leia in her iconic golden bikini, choking Jabba the Hutt to death. It explains everything about his love of kick-ass female characters, escapism, and genre. storytelling, but nothing about his sexuality. Rob grew up in Princeton, NJ, the middle child of three boys. He moved to Los Angeles immediately upon graduating with a business degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania to pursue a career in writing. Inspired by a range of poppy influences from anime to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Rob specializes in blending tones and genres, with an emphasis on outsiders, action, heart, and humor. His TV staffing credits include Army Wives and iZombie, and his original, high-concept TV development has sold to Freeform, BET, and TNT. He is currently writing an AAA video game for Insomniac Games. Rob is the Vice Chair of the WGAW’s LGBTQ+ Writers Committee and the co-founder of The Rainbow Pages, a grassroots list of LGBTQ+ WGA members.
