Along with writing partner James Wong, Glen Morgan carved a name for himself as one of the foremost talents behind the science fiction phenomenon "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002), seeding a career as producer-writer of some of most textured, and critically lauded television shows of the early 2000s. Morgan and Wong, his friend since high school, emerged from Stephen J. Cannell Productions' flurry of early 1990s primetime network shows, among them "21 Jump Street" (Fox, 1987-1991) and "The Commish" (ABC, 1991-95), to land onboard Chris Carter's incipient sci-fi franchise "The X-Files" in 1993. Fox made Morgan and Wong the first of Carter's voluminous talent pool to graduate to their own shows, with the duo creating the short-lived "Space: Above and Beyond" (1995-96). After a brief return to "The X-Files," they took the helm of Carter's subsequent spookfest "Millennium" (1996-1999). Morgan and Wong veered into feature films in the new century, conceiving the "Final Destination" film series and putting slick modern twists on horror classics with "Willard" (2003) and "Black Christmas" (2006), with Morgan taking the director's chair for both. Ensconced as a sci-fi expert, Morgan, sans Wong, would be lured back to television to produce some short-lived genre programs like "The Bionic Woman" (NBC, 2007) before landing a co-executive producer spot with the Steven Spielberg-produced adventure series "The River" (ABC, 2012). Like so many of the "X-Files" creative team, Morgan's would make his signature stamp on American sci-fi and horror, typically bespeaking textured characters and visionary storylines.
