ZPZ was founded in 2003 by Executive Producers Chris Collins and Lydia Tenaglia, with partner and Managing Director Joe Caterini coming aboard in 2009. Since its inception, the company has produced hundreds of hours of award-winning television in over 90 countries around the world, including the critically acclaimed and 2013 Emmy nominated series, Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain (CNN) and the Emmy award-winning series, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (Travel Channel) and Diary of a Foodie (PBS).
In 2009 Zero Point Zero began an expansion into other content platforms including interactive entertainment and publishing. In 2011 they released Pat LaFrieda’s Big App for Meat, an interactive encyclopedia chosen as Apple’s “App of the Week” and then named Apple’s “BEST APPS of 2012”. In 2013 ZPZ acquired The Food Republic website, one of the launch properties in a new ZPZ-owned digital publishing venture. Other digital projects included branded content for TUMI, Subaru, Microsoft/BING, and Breville.
ZPZ is currently in production on the third season of Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain (CNN), City.Ballet (a co-production with Sarah Jessica Parker/Pretty Matches for AOL Originals), two award-winning series, The Mind of a Chef (PBS) and MeatEater with Steven Rinella (Sportsman Channel), Heroes (CNN), The Getaway (Esquire/NBC), The Dose (HLN), and The Tim Ferriss Experiment (HLN).
