A diehard sci-fi/fantasy fan, television writer and producer Bryan Fuller studied film at the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. He got his start in show business by pitching scripts to "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and "Star Trek: Voyager," with episodes first accepted and produced in 1997. In addition to his writing, Fuller became a co-producer on the latter program, working on the series until its final season in 2001. Fuller subsequently created the supernatural comedy/drama series "Dead Like Me," a show that received critical acclaim, but was cancelled after two seasons. With Todd Holland, Fuller co-created the short-lived whimsical series "Wonderfalls," which ran during '04, and, three years later, he unveiled another fantastical show, "Pushing Daisies," a lauded series that also didn't survive beyond two seasons. Despite his bad luck with ongoing series, Fuller remains an in-demand writer and producer, having worked on the popular "Heroes" show, among other projects.
