NN correspondent-turned-screenwriter Bryce Zabel has created five primetime television series, notably NBCâ€™s Emmy-winning UFO series Dark Skies, just released on DVD in January 2011. This year his just published non-fiction book, A.D. After Disclosure: The Peopleâ€™s Guide to Life After Contact, is being developed as a weekly television series by his production company Stellar Productions and Electric Farm Entertainment.
In 2008, Zabel received the Writers Guild of America (WGA) award for writing his third fourhour Hallmark mini-series, Pandemic. He has written multiple studio feature scripts, receiving credit on produced films and miniseries that include Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Blackbeard, and The Poseidon Adventure. He is currently under contract to write Majic Men, about the Roswell investigation. He wrote SyFyâ€™s first original film, Official Denial, and the first film in the Unsolved Mysteries MOW franchise, Victim of Love.
Zabel served as the elected chairman/CEO of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and was responsible for the post 9/11 Emmy awards as well as the negotiations which led to an unprecedented 250 percent license fee increase for the telecast. He has been an awardwinning on-air PBS investigative reporter, an adjunct professor at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and is a member of the Directors Guild of America (DGA), AFTRA and the WGA.
In addition to Dark Skies, Bryce has received the WGA 'created by' or 'developed by' credit on Kay O'Brien (CBS), M.A.N.T.I.S. (FOX), The Crow: Stairway to Heaven (SYN) and E.N.G. (CTV). His other series work includes Steven Spielberg's Taken, L.A. Law, Life Goes On and Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.
