Lindelof

Lindelof captured the cultural zeitgeist yet again with his 2019 HBO series adaptation of DC Comics’ “Watchmen.” An alternative history superhero drama set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, it won 11 Emmys and generated much conversation, not unlike his breakthrough ABC series “Lost,” which he was showrunner on (with Carlton Cuse) from 2004 to 2010. It’s another hit in a long string of socially-conscious sci-fi fare from Lindelof that also includes HBO’s “The Leftovers” (2014-2017) and Universal film “The Hunt” (2020), a controversial feature he co-wrote about political elites who hunt “deplorables” for sport. In July 2021, Lindelof got a 10-episode straight-to-series order from Peacock for “Mrs. Davis,” a drama exploring the conflict between faith and technology that he’s executive producing with Tara Hernandez (“Young Sheldon”).
