Carlton Cuse has mastered the art of primetime storytelling. One of television’s most successful scribes, he is currently writing, executive-producing, and showrunning Colony for USA and the upcoming Jack Ryan for Amazon. Carlton’s TV credits include The Strain and Bates Motel, both of which wrapped multi-season runs earlier this year. In addition to his television work, he has written the hit disaster film San Andreas.
In 2004, Carlton teamed with prolific writer-producer Damon Lindelof as showrunner, executive producer, and writer for all six seasons of ABC’s Lost. While overseeing the show, he pioneered the use of transmedia content in order to extend and deepen its story. The recipient of 10 Emmy Nominations for his work, Carlton scored wins for Best Drama Series and Outstanding Achievement in Interactive Media.
