It is reasonable to assume that, throughout the world, TV viewers of all ages have seen at least one or more of the hundreds of TV shows and movies that Ivan Tors wrote, produced and/or directed. At the peak of his fame, and for years after, the name Ivan Tors' was associated with animals, science drama, and adventure.

Tors was the brilliant Creator of SCIENCE FICTION THEATER, which was the world's first successful syndicated TV series. The program concentrated on such concepts as space flight, robots, telepathy, flying saucers, time travel, and the intervention of extraterrestrials in human affairs.

In 1958 Ivan Tors Created and Produced Sea Hunt which was the first television series that centered on underwater adventures and brought skin diving to the public's attention and inspired incredible interest in the sport.

Ivan also Created and Produced feature films and TV shows with such memorable titles as: FLIPPER, GENTLE GIANT, DAKTARI, A COWBOY IN AFRICA, CLARENCE THE CROSS-EYED LION, NAMU THE KILLER WHALE, and HELLO, DOWN THERE (about a family living in an underwater home), and more. As a result, Tors carved a special niche for himself in the history of Hollywood cinema.

Africa, USA, the largest animal location site, was one of Ivan's enterprises, as well as the IVAN TORS STUDIOS in Miami. This facility firmly established the film industry in South Florida.

"The Legend Of Ivan Tors" details Tors' rise from studio screenwriter to anti-violence and animal rights maverick, to Zoologist and Adventurer, to leading producer of successful family films and programs, which marked a specific Tors' style which reflected his sense of mission that traded sex and violence in film and TV for wholesome entertainment that also dramatically argued the case for wildlife conservation, compassion for all animals, and a wide range of humanistic causes.
