Jeffrey Lieber (1969)

Type :  


Jeffrey Lieber is a screenwriter for both television and film. He was born in Evanston, Illinois, United States and attended Evanston Township High School. He attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and earned a BFA in acting from the Department of Theatre. He is credited as a co-creator of the television series Lost.

ABC hired Lieber, based on his pitch with studio Spelling Television, to write a pilot for Lost. Lieber's initial pitch for the series, then titled Nowhere, was a realistic drama series heavily influenced by Lord of the Flies and Cast Away. As the project developed, ABC soured on the direction they'd given Lieber, and approached J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof, who had an overall deal with their own studio, to rewrite. An industry-standard arbitration was triggered by the competing drafts and the Writers Guild of America ultimately recognized Lieber as co-creator of the show . Besides his initial pilot scripts, Lieber has had no further input into Lost. Lieber and the Lost writing staff won the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Dramatic Series at the February 2006 ceremony for their work on the first and second seasons.

Lieber is credited on the films Tuck Everlasting and Tangled, as well as having been creator/executive producer for unaired TV pilots for Fox Broadcasting Company and Sony Television in .

His latest show Miami Medical, was canceled after 13 episodes.

Jeffrey Lieber is currently serving as an Executive Producer and Showrunner on the USA Network show Necessary Roughness.

In addition to writing for television and film, Lieber also blogs at the website dailykos. His blog posts, which appear as "diaries" rather than front-page posts, typically have a satirical take on the news.
