A TV writer for nearly 15 years now, Zak hopes to pass along all the mistakes he’s made.
Zak grew up in a TV household. The son of a television writer. This is the only life he knows.
He graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans and immediately returned home to Los Angeles to begin a career in television… as an assistant. Moving from PA, to Showrunner’s Assistant, to Script Coordinator, and eventually to Writers’ Assistant.
He eventually got his break in 2009 when he was accepted into the Warner Brothers Writers’ Workshop. The program led to a staff writer position on the FOX action drama HUMAN TARGET. From there Zak went on to write for COVERT AFFAIRS (USA), PERSON OF INTEREST (CBS), COUNTERPART (STARZ), PATRIOT (AMAZON), TAKEN (NBC), WU-TANG: An American Saga (HULU), SNOWPIERCER (TNT), and GEN Z (AMAZON).
Over the years he has sold pilots to USA, CBS, NBC, and FOX. Most recently, he served as Co-Executive Producer for the MIGHTY NEIN animated hour-drama for AMAZON.
Zak lives in LA with his wife and two children. He is represented by CAA and Literate Management.
Zak is new to Script Anatomy, so testimonials will be coming soon!
