TV/Film Production Designer Bio

Meet Robert J. Bacon, a native Los Angeles, third generation Motion Picture Industry Production Designer. Robb began his career with a challenge by another famous Production Designer, his father – Arch Bacon. The solution to the proposition resulted in Robb’s introduction to the Art Department as a Miniatures Creator for the iconic movie starring Jeff Bridges, Charles Grodin and Jessica Lange – “King Kong”. His successful start catapulted him into a life long career straight up the Art Department ladder in both film and television. His most recent achievement involves sitting at the helm of the Art Department for an unprecedented 21 year record (2005 – date), as Belisarius Productions’ Production Designer. Robb created 7 seasons of “JAG”, with David James Elliott and Catherine Bell. Simultaneously he designed First Monday, featuring Joe Mantegna, James Garner and Charles Durning. He was then recruited to create Jag’s spinoff and current number one drama in the world – “NCIS” with Mark Harmon, now in its’ 14th season.
In addition, Robb production designed both NCIS spinoff pilots – NCIS Los Angeles with LL Cool J, Chris O’Donnell and NCIS New Orleans starring Scott Bakula, Lucas Black.
Robb rounds out his free time as an avid musician, golfer and family man. You’ll find him jammin’ in his Santa Clarita music studio weekly, with some of rock-n-roll’s most famous musicians and close friends. His love of golf gets him outside, enjoying the beauty and challenge of Awesome Town’s Valencia Country Club. Enjoying his growing family means the world to him; wife Rebecca, daughters Amy and Annie, their husbands, six grandchildren and miniature Dalmatian – Snickers Bacon.
