Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Rockne S. O'Bannon is a television producer and writer. He is the creator of the science fiction movie Alien Nation, television shows seaQuest DSV, The Triangle and Farscape. He is married with one daughter and two sons - all three children adopted from Russia. He resides in California, USA.

O'Bannon grew up in a home influenced by the film industry. The son of a gaffer, he was surrounded by film from his birth. His father worked on various films through Warner Bros. golden age, and his mother was a professional dancer who performed with Fred Astaire.

He started writing in high school, and wrote many spec scripts (works written "on speculation", without a verbal or written contract), and eventually submitted them to NBC's Amazing Stories and CBS's The Twilight Zone (1985). CBS bought one of them, and after a second script sale for The Twilight Zone, he was hired on as a staff writer.
