Mark Frost – Biographical Brief

Bestselling author and award-winning writer-producer Mark Frost studied directing and playwriting at Carnegie Mellon University. At the age of 20 he began his television career writing for the sci-fi classic "The Six Million Dollar Man," after which he moved to Minneapolis and worked as Literary Associate at the Guthrie Theatre and playwright-in-residence at the Midwestern Playwright’s Lab.

After writing and producing documentaries for PBS, Frost received a Writer`s Guild Award and an Emmy nomination for his work as Executive Story Editor on the celebrated television series "Hill Street Blues." His first feature credits came as writer and Associate Producer of "The Believers," directed by John Schlesinger and starring Martin Sheen and Jimmy Smits. In 1989, he founded Lynch-Frost Productions with director David Lynch. Together they created and executive produced the legendary ABC series "Twin Peaks," receiving four Emmy nominations and a Peabody Award. In 1990 he also created the groundbreaking documentary series "American Chronicles." Twentieth Century Fox released Frost`s critically acclaimed directorial feature debut, "Storyville," a political thriller starring James Spader and Jason Robards, in 1992.
