- In addition to executive producer, he serves as head writer on the award-winning Movie Dearest fave, which not only will return early from its spring hiatus next Thursday, it has also been renewed for a fourth season.

- His first produced screenplay was for the cult horror flick Urban Legend, in which he also has a cameo. His other unproduced screenplays including Even Exchange and The Furies (with Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy).

- Prior to Betty, he also created two short-lived science fiction series for television, Jake 2.0 and The Chronicle: News from the Edge.
