A prolific film and television screenwriter-producer, Jeph Loeb also garnered acclaim as an award-winning writer for comic book publishing giants DC and Marvel. Fresh from earning his master's degree in film at Columbia University, Loeb enjoyed early success as the co-scripter for the genre movies "Teen Wolf" (1985) and "Commando" (1985). Work on an unproduced superhero movie led to the lifelong comic book aficionado being offered writing jobs on several titles for DC Comics in the early 1990s. Loeb broke out in the industry with the heralded miniseries Batman: The Long Halloween, drawn by artist Tim Sale with whom the writer would collaborate several more times on titles for both DC and Marvel. Comics and television converged when Loeb was brought on as a producer-writer on the teen-themed Superman adaptation "Smallville" (The WB/The CW, 2001-2011), the cult phenomenon "Lost," (ABC, 2004-2010) and the superhero melodrama "Heroes" (NBC, 2006-2010). Having further cemented his relationship with Marvel Comics as the writer of titles like New Ultimates, Loeb parlayed his producing experience into a position as Marvel Entertainment's Head of Television in 2010, where he oversaw such animated fare as "Ultimate Spider-Man" (Disney XD, 2012- ). Multi-talented and exceptionally ambitious, Loeb continued to exploit synergistic opportunities presented by his unique experience in two of entertainment's most popular mediums.
