From working on films, to running camera and technical directing, Jan Robinson has worked in front and behind the camera for over thirty years. Little did she know that one day Heather Locklear would play her in a feature film titled, “The Perfect Man” which was based on her life as a single mother in Tucson, Arizona. This time around, Jan has been working with investors bringing money to Indie films as well as special projects and documentaries. Additionally, she has been utilizing her collections of special props and antiques to help design sets for film and television.
Jan is currently writing her memoir which includes the true story of which the Perfect Man movie was based on.
Heather Robinson-Ross has become an accomplished screenwriter, producer, author and philanthropist. After graduating high school she went to work for America Online where she met actress and writer Carrie Fisher in an online chat room. Carrie convinced Heather to write a screenplay based on her life as a teenager growing up with a single mother. Heather eventually sold her first script titled, “The Perfect Man” to Universal Pictures that starred Hilary Duff, Heather Locklear and Chris Noth.
In December of 2018, Heather was elected to serve on the Board of the National Foundation to End Child Abuse and Neglect or EndCAN. As a caregiver to her husband, Lt. Colonel Gary Ross who had recently been diagnosed with a rare form of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma called Waldenstrom's disease, Heather quickly realized she was unable to dedicate the time and effort that the organization deserved. The co-founder of the organization, Lori Poland, and Heather have since joined forces to develop a screenplay based on Lori's soon-to-be published memoir. Heather has optioned the film rights to Lori's story through her production company, Feisty Fox Productions.
EndCAN works to change the way child abuse and neglect is addressed by focusing on the health, mental health and public health issues of abuse.
As a military spouse, Heather is honored to have been selected to volunteer her time assisting an incredible production team in writing and producing a National Suicide Awareness campaign for the United States Army. More on this will be released in 2020.
