The Zinn-verse is a media franchise that consists of a group of seven interconnected that share a universe, and their related media. Nine television series make up the bulk of the Zinn-verse franchise: Amanda & Elisa, Queen of the Willis, Hoosier Anchorwoman!, Vote for the Girls, Vape Back! with Ava Zinn, Ava Zinn's Retail Nightmares, The Souzas, Caprice & Ella, and Quillsville Cold Case.


Main article: Career of Ava Zinn

In 1989, Ava Zinn met Robyn Hurd and Holly Everman, who would eventually form a stong friendship that would last until Hurd's death on May 23, 2012 and Everman's death on May 23, 2017. From there until 1999, Zinn moved from ATE Media to NoSirGifts, which was founded by her mother in 1987, to work with Jackson Steele and Bob Imperial, both news anchormen.

Zinn first came to prominence in 1999 while serving as news director at WRDS-FLP (channel 47, now WXXC) in Fort Wayne, Indiana. WRDS station owner Rachel Dean, Sr. founded the station while at the same time Zinn launched INNewsCenter. Dean invested heavily in pouring most of the station's resources into its news department. With Dean's backing, Zinn adopted the "News Directors and Producers Have a Choice, Viewers Don't" format heavy on two-woman anchor teams. Zinn is often criticized for an emphasis on all-female news teams, as it was often overlooked that diversity was a major concern for the people of Fort Wayne at the time. However, the "INNCD 47 News" format revived a station that had low ratings prior to its merger with WTOR (channel 41). It also heavily influenced what other NoSirGifts stations' newscasts and other Aeverine Zinn Productions would look like for many years to come, therefore creating the Zinn-verse.

INNewsCenter began on November 1, 1999, and its original run ran for twelve full seasons. It initially featured clips from only the Indianapolis and Fort Wayne markets until 2004 when South Bend, Terre Haute, Lafayette, Evansville, Cincinnati, Dayton, Louisville, and Chicago were added covering all of Indiana's 92 counties and Indiana's ten media markets. INNewsCenter began with Inside Indiana Business and the original run concluded on June 30, 2011 with the May 11, 2011 announcment that Fox announced that it would drop its Evansville affiliation with WTVW and affiliate with a subchannel of WEVV-TV that already carried programming from MyNetworkTV, effective July 1 (WEVV's main channel remains with CBS)—in effect, resulting in Fox returning to its original affiliate in Evansville. The move came as Fox aggressively sought a higher share of retransmission earnings gained by its affiliates as part of affiliation agreements, an approach that openly irked WTVW owner Nexstar.[1] Nexstar would subsequently be stripped of its Fox affiliations in Springfield, Missouri (KSFX-TV), and Fort Wayne (WFFT-TV) as well, and Nexstar decided to drop the Fox affiliation from its Terre Haute affiliate (WFXW), which would regain its former ABC affiliation under the new callsign WAWV-TV.[2][3] The rebooted version began on December 28, 2014, with ironically another major netowrk affiliation change in Indianapolis that was announced on August 11, 2014. That day, wikipedia:Tribune Broadcasting announced that CW affiliate WTTV would become Indianapolis' CBS affiliate on January 1, 2015, as part of an agreement that also renewed the CBS affiliations on Tribune-owned stations in five other markets.[4] The deal, which resulted in the end of WISH-TV's 58-year relationship with CBS, was reportedly struck as a result of WISH station management balking at the network's demands for sharing of retransmission consent revenue from its affiliates.[5] This led to CBS reaching a deal with WTTV, which Tribune was eager to land since until 2023, the network held the broadcast television rights to the AFC, which included rights to most of the Indianapolis Colts' regular season games. In 2023, the Sunday afternoon packages for Fox and CBS became conference-agonistic, still allowing both WTTV and WXIN to carry the bulk of Colts games throughout the season.

Zinn then created animated sitcoms Amanda & Elisa and Queen of the Willis, of which the former ran from 2004 until 2009 and the latter initially running from 2006 until 2012 and again from 2019 until 2026. Amanda & Elisa was a successful adult animated series which was in production from 2004 to 2009. To date along with Hoosier Anchorwoman! and The Souzas, Amanda & Elisa are Zinn's animated series to have suffered an official cancellation. Amanda & Elisa ended on June 27, 2009, with a total of 5 seasons and 100 episodes, and the title characters moved to Queen of the Willis in the episode The Story of Amanda and Elisa.

Queen of the Willis first aired on August 12, 2006. Zinn's work in animating Queen of the Willis has been influenced by Jack Klugman along with examples from King of the Hill, Family Guy and Growing Pains.[6] In addition to writing various episodes, including "Pilot", "Ten Years to Life" and "The Rape of Heather Willis", Zinn voices Queen of the Willis's main transgendered female characters – Ava Willis, Tabby Willis, Addison Ellissong, Michelle Wilson – as well as male characters Ron Willis, Dr. Mario Coxson, Zach Mullins, Robert "Crob Bob" Craven and Mullins' grandson Caleb Mullins – and female characters Shushu Willis, Heather Willis, Anna Pamhouser, Angelika Mullins, Amanda Dawson, and Elisa Donovan and additional characters. Queen of the Willis has been cancelled twice, although strong fan support and YouTube views have caused CBS Television Distribution to reconsider. Zinn mentioned how these cancellations affected the lineup of writers each time. "One of the positive aspects of Queen of the Willis constantly being pulled off [the air] is that we were always having to restaff writers and recasting". In Fort Wayne, the show has moved from then-ATE Media owned ABC affiliate WMRI (now an ABC O&O) to NoSirGifts-owned CBS affiliate/independent station (and flagship) duopoly WTOR/WXXC-FDT in 2007 where it aired since while in Indianapolis, the show has moved from WHOO-FTV to WIFX-FTV in 2007 where it aired from 2007 to 2018 before moving to United Broadcasting owned CW affiliate WEVI.

Hoosier Anchorwoman! was first shown in April 2009, three months after the the Indianapolis Colts' loss to the Saints debuting with the episode "Pilot", which Zinn co-wrote. Zinn has described the initial seasons of Hoosier Anchorwoman! as being INNewsCenter, likening title character Kendra Kendall's originally bigoted persona after a sex change. Zinn has also stated that her inspiration to create Hoosier Anchorwoman! derived from her experience of never seeing to anchormen anchor a newscast after the main female anchor takes the day off for any reason from 1987 until 2009, yet does not mind watching two anchorwomen on a tellevision news broadcast.[7] Zinn was described as having difficulty understanding the series in its early going; however, she heavily warmed up to the series after its early seasons once he felt the show truly came into its own. Her fellow co-creators have sensed this through Zinn's greatly increased attention to the series after its early seasons. Zinn has also revealed she is a Hoosier Anchorwoman! fan herself. She has taken note of the positive reaction to the "Joyce" character by fans via her Twitter. The show focuses on the Kendall family: Kendra Kendall, the endangering, dog-eat-dog, rash and inconsiderate head of the household. She has an exaggeratedly large chin and feminine manner about her. As the family's breadwinner, she works as a news anchor/reporter and was initially portrayed in the series as an old-fashioned conservative bigot but has since grown out of these traits ; Kendra's paradoxically moralistic yet simultaneously inappropriate, corrupt wife, Miles; and their three children, new-age hippie daughter Samantha, daughter Allison and nerdy daughter Jackie. Accompanying the Kendall family are three additional main characters, two of which belong to non-human species: zany, shocking, blithely cruel and rascally cow Joyce, who's full of disguises/alter egos and has few if any limits on her behaviors. She was rescued by Kendra from a slaughterhouse; Kayla, the woman-in-a-snake-body pet. Kayla's unenviable situation came about from the brain of an Russian Olympic gymnist being shrunk and transplanted into a snake body; and Alec Dailey, Samantha's boyfriend turned "whipped" husband, known for his homosexual infatuation with Samantha's mom, Miles. Hoosier Anchorwoman! ended on May 19, 2013, with a total of 4 seasons and 88 episodes, and the character of Kendra moved to Queen of the Willis in the episode The Girls Are Back in Quillsville.

Zinn's 2004 gender transition and 2018 move to Fort Wayne provided a major windfall for Zinn in 2010, with Holly Everman, Robyn Hurd, and villain Archibald Coolranch, Zinn was a moderator and host on the first season of the American web site Vote for the Girls, which she created using her production company, Aeverine Zinn Holdings (later Aeverine Zinn Digital Media Group and Aeverine Zinn Productions). Vote for the Girls premiered on April 28, 2010 and was a surprise hit and success with the public launched the Vote for the Girls franchise in the United Kingdom and Australia. In 2011, Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina, two female contestants on the tenth season of American Idol were prominently featured on the site after the elimination of Pia Toscano. Zinn returned for a third season alongside Everman and Hurd, as well as auditioning for the 11th season of American Idol herself and exposing the previous season's gender bias, the site gained popularity and overtook Vote for the Worst. After launching Vote for the Girls (which was launched to compete with VFTW), in response Zinn stated "It's becoming clear that people want a change that we all believe in. It's only about what you're doing and supposed to do, and like I'm supposed to be doing this." The site's YouTube videos featured screaming matches among Zinn, her guests, and audience members. Using a large black bowl for an ashtray, she would chainsmoke during the video and blow cigarette smoke (later e-cigarette smoke) in her guests' faces. In 2016, as she celebrated 10 Vote for the Girls victories (So You Think You Can Dance victories of Lauren Froderman, Melanie Moore, Eliana Girard, and Amy Yakima; The Voice victories of Cassadee Pope, Danielle Bradbery, Tessanne Chin and Alisan Porter and Chloe Kohanski; American Idol victories of Nick Fradiani and Trent Harmon; The Voice Moderators Saves of Christina Grimmie and Meghan Linsey; American Idol Moderator Saves of Angie Miller and Jena Asciutto) in the United States and four United Kingdom victories (Strictly Come Dancing double victory of Caroline Flack and Frankie Bridge; X Factor Moderator Save of Fleur East and victory Louisa Johnson; and The Voice UK Moderator Save of Lucy O'Byrne). with Vote for the Girls site and recently began to wear strapless tops and dresses with thong panties to strongly reflect her gender identity as a woman along with the punishment for failure with Christina Grimmie's third place finish on The Voice and Jena Irene's runner-up finish on American Idol. Zinn returned for her ninth consecuitive season in 2017 and did not appear in as much of the season, as she was launching Vape Back!, Ava Zinn's Retail Nightmares and Ava Zinn's Housing Hell in addition to her move to Fort Wayne though her final two picks for The Voice 13 were runner-up Addison Agen and winner Chloe Kohanski. Zinn returned for a tenth consecuitive season in 2018 and did not appear in as much due to her relaunching Queen of the Willis and her move to Fort Wayne. Zinn appeared for an 11th season in 2019 on a regular basis and a 12th/initial final season in 2020. Vote for the Girls concluded its initial run on May 23, 2021 after 12 seasons. On April 19, 2023, in a Facebook post by Karly Jameson it was revealed that Vote for the Girls was confirmed to return after she launched a Change.org petition in May 2021. Ava Zinn followed up in a Twitter post saying, "Ending Vote for the Girls in May 2021 is something I regret ever doing and thanks to Karly's (Jameson) Change.org petition, I'm happy to bring the show back!" In an Instagram post by Ava Zinn, it was revealed that Vote for the Girls would officially return on April 7, 2024.

While creating the series Caprice & Ella, Zinn had just finished off her twelve-year run on Vote for the Girls with Ava Zinn & Alexandra Moffitt and was looking for another project. Karly Jameson, Thia Tola, and Rachael Passalt were respectively working as a producer for Queen of the Willis, The Karly Jameson Show, The Souzas, respectively. The four got together to form the basis for Caprice & Ella. The series is filmed on the southeast side of Fort Wayne, Indiana for its first four seasons. From the halfway point of season 4 onwards, it is filmed in various locations around Fort Wayne, yet mostly on the northeast side of the city.[8] Caprice & Ella premiered on February 27, 2021 after Zinn adopted a cute 10-month-old female American domestic short hair cat named Caprice, named after the Chevrolet Caprice as Zinn's late brother was an automobile mechanic prior to his death. A month later, Ava adopts an 8-week-old female Chihualua puppy, whom she names Ella.
