MIAMI, USA // The expression “art imitates life” is especially true for Chris Sloan, a creative visionary who has woven his passion for living into every facet of his career. From adventure and travel to food and aviation, Sloan’s projects reflect his ardent pursuit of personal enrichment, a trait that has given him an edge as a storyteller.
Since co-founding the award-winning production company and creative hot shop 2C Creative (www.2C.tv) in 2005, Sloan and his team have incorporated this passion into the creation and production of several successful cable TV series and specials, including “Dr. Miami” (WE tv), “Growing Up Gator” (GAC), “Florida Untamed” (Nat Geo WILD), “Airport 24/7: Miami” (Travel Channel), “Swamp Wars” (Animal Planet), “Danger Coast” (CMT), “A Stand Up Mother” (WE tv), “Future Food” (Discovery: Planet Green) and “10 Things You Didn’t Know” (Travel Channel), among others.
And while original series production is a staple of 2C, Sloan has prided himself in building the company into a truly diversified venture that also includes live-action directing, branded entertainment and broadcast promotion and design. As a result, his clients represent a who’s who of broadcast and cable networks that actively seek out his creative vision and hands-on production expertise.
With 2C, Sloan has been instrumental in successful series launches for, among others, FOX, NBC, HBO, TNT, SyFy, truTV, The Weather Channel, USA, TLC, Lifetime, Bravo, Discovery, Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, Animal Planet, History, Telepictures, Oxygen, National Geographic Channel, Chiller, TV Land, HGTV, DIY, Fuse, Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, CMT, CNN, Debmar-Mercury, ABC Domestic TV Distribution, DISH, MGM, NBC Domestic TV Distribution and 20th Television.
When he’s not executive producing a new TV series or spearheading a network promotional campaign, Sloan fulfills a lifelong passion for aviation through www.airwaysmag.com (formerly airchive.com), a news site offering round-the-clock coverage of the commercial aviation industry. Sloan’s journalism for AirwaysNews.com has taken him around the globe, and his coverage has been featured in Forbes, USA Today, Business Insider, CNET and more.
He is also active in furthering social good causes through Caleb & Calder Sloan’s Awesome Foundation, the non-profit he founded to honor his late son. Fundraisers and community outreach efforts have benefitted Lehrman Community Day School, Miami Children’s Museum, Centro Mater Child Care Services, #HashtagLunchBag, Operation Puerto Rico Care-Lift, Operation Puerto Rico Gift-Lift and others.
Prior to launching 2C, Sloan held a number of executive creative, programming and production posts, including Creative Director for NBC Entertainment; VP of Reality Programming for USA Networks; VP Production for TLC Network; and Editor at Limelight Video, among other roles. A complete credit list is appended.
A multiple Emmy Award winning producer, Sloan is a member of the PromaxBDA Board and the Miami-Dade Film Commission. He is a regular speaker and panelist who has appeared at TEDx, PromaxBDA and NATPE events, among others. In 2018, he was named one of StudioDaily’s StudioDaily 50 for his work in the production industry.
With a zest for challenging the boundaries of life experience, Sloan is also a serial thrill-seeker, foodie and travel addict who resides in beautiful Miami, Florida with his wife Carla and son Caleb.
