Biography

TV producer, Richard Briggs entered the world of television production as a writer on the made-for-TV movie musical "The Christmas Visit" in 1973. The next year, he became a production executive on the made-for-TV movie "The Stranger Who Looks Like Me," an adoption drama starring Meredith Baxter. He worked in this capacity on a string of productions including the "Ghostbusters" TV series. In 1977, he stepped up to associate producer on the made-for-TV thriller "Red Alert." After a string of made-for-TV movies that included "Mazes and Monsters," "I Married Wyatt Earp," and "Heart of Steel," Briggs tackled his first feature film with the Neanderthal adventure "The Clan of the Cave Bear." The film was a financial flop, earning only a fraction of its production budget back. However, the movie did earn an ardent cult following and an Oscar nomination for Best Makeup. After the film's release, Briggs debuted a new string of made-for-TV movies, then faded from the TV spotlight, resurfacing in 1993 as a producer on "Poisoned by Love: The Kern County Murders."
