Idol worship: Bryan Fuller, writer/producer.
- A self-professed sci-fi geek, he successfully pitched a script for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and hasn't looked back since. He eventually moved over to Star Trek: Voyager, winding up the show's co-producer.
- He next created two critically acclaimed but short-lived series, Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls.
- His other television credits include the TV movie remake of Stephen King's Carrie, the animated comedy The Amazing Screw-On Head and the first season of Heroes.
- He left Heroes to create his own fantasy series, the Emmy Award winning Pushing Daisies. The quirky romantic comedy returns for its second season next Wednesday.
- He has received Emmy nominations for his work on Heroes and Pushing Daisies, plus Writers Guild of America nomination for those two as well as Wonderfalls.
