Biography

Tim Kring is a television writer and producer, and the creator of the successful sci-fi drama "Heroes. " One of his earliest breaks in TV came in 1986, when he wrote an episode of the popular "supercar" drama, "Knight Rider." Kring made a more substantial impact 10 years later, writing four episodes of the hit hospital drama "Chicago Hope," earning a shared Emmy nomination for Outstanding Drama Series. By 2001, Kring had established enough credibility to create a series, the crime drama "Crossing Jordan." The series, which ran for six full seasons, followed forensic pathologist Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh, played by Jill Hennessy, who is something of a rogue crime-solver, inspired by the difficulty in resolving her own mother's murder. Kring wrote and executive-produced all 117 episodes of the show, and during "Crossing Jordan"'s run, Kring managed to develop and create another hit, "Heroes," which began airing in '06 on NBC, and ran four seasons. With its large ensemble cast, the series was influenced by comic-book characters, and each of the "Heroes" carried a superhuman ability. The show earned Kring another Emmy nomination in '07.
