Lindelof

Lindelof has experienced a lot of success in his career, from co-creating ABC’s “Lost” to producing the 2009 big-screen “Star Trek” reboot and co-writing and producing its 2013 sequel, “Star Trek: Into Darkness.” But nothing he’s done before received as many accolades as his HBO adaptation of graphic novel “Watchmen,” which grabbed 11 Emmys in 2020, including two for Lindelof, and his prior HBO series “The Leftovers” received near-unanimous critical praise. 2020 also saw the release of “The Hunt,” a controversial big-screen action thriller he co-wrote about wealthy liberals who kidnap and hunt “deplorables” that saw an early PVOD release after its March theatrical run was cut short by COVID. Before returning to TV, he co-wrote scripts for the 2012 “Alien” prequel “Prometheus” and Brad Pitt zombie thriller “World War Z.”
