Bryan Fuller serves as executive producer and co-showrunner on Starz’s American Gods, based on Neil Gaiman’s classic novel. Fuller got his start writing Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, followed by Star Trek: Voyager, where he worked his way up from freelance writer to staff writer to co-producer. He charted a new path during his last year on Star Trek: Voyager, writing a spec pilot called “Dead Girl,” which became Showtime’s Dead Like Me. Fuller then went on to create the critically acclaimed series Wonderfalls for Fox and wrote and executive produced the animated movie The Amazing Screw-On Head with Mike Mignola for the Sci-Fi Channel. He also served as writer and co-executive producer on the first season of NBC’s Heroes before leaving to create the Emmy Award-winning Pushing Daisies for ABC. He wrote and executive produced Mockingbird Lane, a reimagining of the classic sit-com The Munsters as a modern family dramedy, which aired on NBC as a Halloween special, and served as executive producer on the television film High Moon for Syfy. Bryan then developed and executive produced the critically-acclaimed series Hannibal, which ran for three seasons on NBC. Fuller was the recipient of the Dan Curtis Legacy Award at the 40th Annual Saturn Awards, as well as the 3rd Annual Award for Comic-Con All Access Game Changer from Spike TV.
