Biography

The prolific and productive writing-producing team of Glen Morgan and James Wong played a major part in helping Fox-TV's "The X-Files" attain first cult status and eventual mass acceptance and acclaim. As staff writers and co-executive producers, they were responsible for crafting some of the series' most memorable stories and characters. Dour FBI man Assistant Director Skinner, creepy-crawly mutant Eugene Tooms and a delightfully paranoid trio of conspiracy theorists called The Lone Gunmen all sprung from their keyboard. Furthermore Morgan and Wong scripted a number of key episodes that provided crucial background and motivation for the show's two protagonists.
