About the Author

Marc Guggenheim

A native of Long Island, New York, Marc practiced law at one of Boston's most prestigious firms for over four years before leaving to pursue his dream of writing professionally. That legal experience led to a staff position on David E. Kelley's Emmy-winning show about Boston attorneys, "The Practice." That same year, he sold his screenplay, "Musical Chairs," to Sid Sheinberg's The Bubble Factory.

These opportunities led to an invitation to join the writing staff of "Law & Order," where he wrote for three seasons before moving on to the critically-acclaimed series "Jack & Bobby," and later, the ratings juggernaut "CSI: Miami." It was "Jack & Bobby" that introduced Marc to Greg Berlanti and the two resolved to create a show together, a pact which led to the development of Eli Stone, for which they received a Writers Guild Award nomination for Best Drama Teleplay.

That year, Marc added comic books and videogames to his growing body of work. His first published comic book was a two-issue story for DC's "Aquaman," which he parlayed into two critically-acclaimed runs on Marvel Comics' premier super-hero, Wolverine. In November 2007, Marc launched his first creator-owned series with Oni Press, entitled Resurrection, which has been optioned as a feature film by Universal Pictures.

Marc's other comic book credits include Amazing Spider-Man, Young X-Men, Supreme Power, Superman/Batman, The Flash, Blade, Super Zombies and Galactica 1980.

His videogame work includes: "Call of Duty 3," "Perfect Dark Zero," and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," which was nominated for a WGA Award for Best Writing.

But Marc hasn't left television. While writing and producing the Eli pilot, Greg pulled Marc in to help him produce the first season of "Brothers & Sisters," which has become a Top-20 hit for ABC, where he now has a development deal.

Marc continues to collaborate with Greg as a co-writer on the feature film version of "Green Lantern" to be directed by Martin Campbell for Warner Bros.

Marc currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife Tara (a fellow TV writer and WGA nominee, who is co-creator of the CW dramedy Reaper) , their daughters, and their cat Rocky.
