      Alfred Gough was a screenwriter and producer who, along with his writing partner Miles Millar, helped launch dozens of reboots and sequels, many in the action and teen genres. He combined all of these elements in his best-known project, the long-running and critically acclaimed superhero show "Smallville" (WB 2001-2011). Gough was born on August 22, 1967 in Maryland. He graduated from the Catholic University of America in 1989 before attending the Peter Stark Producing Program at the University of Southern California, where he met Millar. The two became known for their scripts, and were recruited for high profile projects early in their careers. They wrote the fourth installment of the "Lethal Weapon" (1998) franchise, starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Moving into action comedy, they wrote "Shanghai Noon" (2000), a martial arts western starring Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson. Their show "Smallville," an adaptation of the Superman comics focusing on Clark Kent's teenage years, was picked up in 2001 and ran for ten years. In the years following, they directed a couple of teen movies, including "Herbie: Fully Loaded" (2005) and "Hannah Montana: The Movie" (2009). Returning to TV years later, they created "Into The Badlands" (AMC 2015-), a buzzy martial arts drama adapted from a classic Chinese saga.
