'''Bryan Fuller''' (born July 27, 1969) is an American screenwriter and producer. Starting his TV writing career on the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' franchise and on the TV remake of ''{{Carrie}}'', Fuller soon began to come into his own following the TurnOfTheMillennium, when he began creation and co-creating his own works.

Famous for starting [[BlackComedy dark-yet-humorous]] hit [[CultClassic cult shows]], his notable, independant early works include ''DeadLikeMe'' (2003-04), ''{{Wonderfalls}}'' (2004), and ''PushingDaisies'' (2007-2009). He also was an executive producer on the first, fourth and fifth volumes (because Seasons aren't comic book-y enough) of ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', and wrote fan-favorite episode "Company Man".

During Fall 2012, he attempted a reboot of ''TheMunsters'' for Creator/{{NBC}}, dubbed ''Series/MockingbirdLane'', which did not make it past the pilot stage. His latest series is the crime series ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'', based on the character of [[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]], running since April 2013 on Creator/{{NBC}}. Hannibal is an especially notable entry as, not only did season one mark the first time he got to end a first season on his own terms, but it's his first show not to be ScrewedByTheNetwork before reaching season three. He is also currently working on a television adaptation of the Creator/NeilGaiman novel ''Literature/AmericanGods'', which he will co-Produce with Michael Green.

Known for his wildly original, sophisticated and usually macabre work; lamentably, his series tend to not last too long. Fuller seems to be fond of giving female leads {{Tomboyish Name}}s. All of his series (yes, even the DarkerAndEdgier PlayingAgainstType ''Hannibal'') share a universe.

!!Tropes associated with Fuller and his shows:

* ActionGirl: Female protagonists are frequent, and badass female characters even moreso.
* AnyoneCanDie: Appears in a few shows, most notably ''Hannibal'', where PlotArmor is dubious even for characters in the later books.
* AuthorAppeal: All works contain at least some flavor of either magic, death or murder. And sometimes food.
* BechdelTest: Most shows pass.
* OneOfUs: A big fan of the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series, he ended up on the writing team for 22 episodes. Besides that, occasional {{Shout Out}}s can be found hidden in places.
* ProductionPosse: Though some are reduced to TheCameo, quite a few actors can be seen passing between works. TheOtherWiki even has a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bryan_Fuller#Frequent_casting chart showing overlap.]]
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: And ''how.'' Despite making shows with strong fandoms and great responses, several of his shows have been subject to cancellation. Put it this way: when ''Hannibal'' was the first of his shows to receive a third season, ''a large part of the fan-response was disbelief.''
* TrollingCreator: Via twitter. Hell, when fan rumors started flying about the apparent death of Season 2 ''Hannibal'' character [[spoiler:Dr. Frederick Chilton]], he proceeded to post ambiguous tweets and ''diagrams of how they could have survived.''
* TheVerse: All his shows take place in [[FanNickname "The Fullerverse"]].
