After beginning his career in Hollywood within the confines of sitcoms, writer Mark Levin made a rather unusual transition. He scripted 10 episodes of the much-loved coming-of-age comedy-drama "The Wonder Years", then went on to co-create the 1994-95 NBC science-fiction series "Earth 2". Although the show featured a relatively low-level cast and was canceled after just one season, it nonetheless went on to achieve cult status. A decade later, Levin revisited the science-fiction real when he co-wrote the 2008 3-D remake of old classic "Journey to the Center of the Earth". Starring Brendan Fraser and a suspiciously still-working cell phone, the film was nowhere near as effective as the original 1959 adaptation of the Jules Verne classic novel. In between projects, Levin contributed as a screenwriter to 1998 family comedy "Madeline", 2004 romantic comedy "Wimbledon" with Kirsten Dunst, and 2008 drama "Nim's Island" co-starring Jodie Foster and Gerard Butler.
