Who Am I?
Robert Liano has been creating content for screens of all sizes for 15 years. His career began as a runner for CBS Sports and this opportunity set the stage for the next decade working in the high adrenaline world of live network sports television. He learned storytelling through production credits on both live and taped productions including the NCAA Final Four, Daytona 500 and The Masters. As a producer his talent has been showcased on ABC, NBC, ESPN, Discovery Channel, IFC, USA Network, Fine Living and Court TV. In 2002 his work for NBC at Olympics earned an Emmy award.
In 1998 he set out to produce, write and direct a documentary film about the vanishing American barber titled, Barberland. The film premiered at the AFI Film Festival and is currently distributed on DVD.
It was the wisdom of the barbers in the film that inspired him to create his New York based production company, Saul Goode Entertainment, LLC. A seat in a windowsill at Saul Goode Entertainment’s headquarters in New York’s Greenwich Village provided the inspiration for, A Broad Way, the first ever-massive collaborative documentary film about Manhattan. Over 400 filmmakers took part in simultaneously documenting each of the 221 blocks that make up Broadway. The film won the award for Best Documentary at the ACE Film Festival in 2007 and is currently in contract for theatrical distribution.
In 2005 he led the production of Reebok’s ground breaking branded entertainment franchise Framed on the Independent Film Channel continuing his track record for creating innovative and engaging content. Last year he developed the 20 episode docu-series MTV Hired which chronicled young people seeking their first full time job. Most recently he oversaw the production of BRAVO’s Mad Fashion. The 10 episode series will premiere late 2011.
Saul Goode Entertainment is currently developing two TV series and a documentary about live recorded music.
