      Dean Devlin

      Dean Devlin

      Highest Rated: 89% Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006)

      Lowest Rated: 5% Universal Soldier: The Return (1999)

      Birthday: Aug 27, 1962

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      A former teen actor, Dean Devlin stepped behind the camera in the early 1990s to become the co-writer and producer of some of the biggest science fiction films in history, including "Stargate" (1994), "Independence Day" (1996) and "Godzilla" (1998) before moving into television with such hits as "The Librarian" franchise and "Leverage" (TNT, 2008-12). A dedicated sci-fi fan, Devlin and director Roland Emmerich blended 1950s-style speculative fiction - alien invasions, giant monsters - with the latest achievements in special effects to produce their blockbusters; fans flocked to these films, while critics dismissed them as pure popcorn. But after "Godzilla" failed to meet its projected gross, Devlin parted ways with Emmerich to work on more modestly scaled fare for television. These efforts, including "The Triangle" (Sci-Fi Channel, 2005), were massive hits for basic cable, and affirmed Devlin's Midas touch with the fantastic in not one but two mediums.
