George Strayton (Screenwriter)

After writing and editing books based on film properties like "Star Wars", "Indiana Jones", and "Men In Black", OriginsŽ Award Nominee George Strayton headed to Los Angeles, where he figured out how to sneak onto the Universal Studios lot (which involves a trek across the roof of the credit union on Lankershim). After a few months of unscheduled and unsupervised visits, he finagled himself a job as Director of Marketing at Universal Studios Television, giving him access to the staffs at the studiošs various TV series.

Within a year, he was hired by Sam Raimišs Renaissance Pictures to write the fifth-season finale of "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys".  After a few more freelance episodes of "Hercules and Cleopatra 2525" (Renaissance's sci-fi series), he was brought on staff full-time at the number-one-rated action series "Xena: Warrior Princess", where he worked under showrunners Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci ("Alias", "The Legend of Zorro", "Mission Impossible 3", "Transformers", "Star Trek XI"). There, he was given the honor of writing the 100th episode. After leaving Renaissance, Strayton attended Columbia Universityšs MFA in Film (Screenwriting) program on scholarship, from which he moved directly into writing the screenplay for the upcoming "Dragonlance" movie.
