Clydew interviews Writer/Prodcuer/Director and Research Bryce Zabel about After Disclosure!
CNN correspondent-turned-screenwriter Bryce Zabel has created five primetime network television series and worked on a dozen TV writing staffs. A produced feature writer in both live-action and animation, he has written and produced for nearly all major networks and studios and collaborated with talents like Steven Spielberg, Stan Lee and David E. Kelley.
Bryce recently scripted a trio of film assignments based on optioned material of true stories: Majic Men, about the Roswell investigators; The Last Battle, about the final week of World War II in Europe; and Let's Do It, about the first full-length student film ever produced with help from Cecil B. DeMille.
In 2008, Bryce (with his wife, Jackie) received the Writers Guild of America (WGA) award for writing his third four-hour Hallmark mini-series, Pandemic. He has received credit on produced films and miniseries that include Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Blackbeard, and The Poseidon Adventure. He wrote SyFy's first original film, Official Denial, and the first film in the Unsolved Mysteries MOW franchise, Victim of Love. He has worked for ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, HBO, Showtime, SONY, Warner Bros., 20th Fox, Universal, Syfy, Hallmark, USA, Animal Planet, etc.
Bryce served as the elected chairman/CEO of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, the first writer in that position since Rod Serling. During his term, he was responsible for the post 9/11 Emmy awards as well as the negotiations which led to an unprecedented 250 percent license fee increase for the telecast. He has been an award-winning on-air journalist for PBS (investigative reporter), CNN (correspondent) and NBC (local news). His hardcover non-fiction book, A.D. After Disclosure: When the Government Finally Reveals the Truth about Alien Contact has just been published by New York's Career Press, New Page Books. It is being featured by Barnes and Noble in the summer of 2012 in their entry tables in the "New & Noteworthy" section. It is being developed for TV and film projects.
In addition to the Emmy-winning Dark Skies (released on DVD 2011), Bryce has received the WGA "created by" or "developed by" credit on Kay O'Brien (CBS), M.A.N.T.I.S. (FOX), The Crow: Stairway to Heaven (SYN) and E.N.G. (CTV). His other series work includes Steven Spielberg's Taken, L.A. Law, Life Goes On and Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. He worked with Marvel icon Stan Lee on TV pilots, co-writing comicbooks and as the lead creative executive on the Stan Lee Media launch.
