Creator: Tim Minear
"I've been cancelled more times than a Whitney Houston comeback tour."Quote from the New York Times:"To fans of the WB's recently canceled Angel, the writer Tim Minear is known affectionately as The Tim Reaper: the master of the fatal plot twist." (The cited article can be found here.)Also known for shows on FOX that get cancelled very quickly. In the space of five years, he produced Firefly (11 episodes aired), Wonderfalls (4 episodes aired), The Inside (6 episodes aired), and Drive (4 episodes aired). Then he became a consulting producer on Dollhouse, which actually got two seasons before it got canned. He then produced the critically beloved Terriers for f(x), which attracted fewer viewers than the average high-school play. He worked on The Chicago Code, which was canceled by FOX after its 13 episode first season. He is currently executive producer on American Horror Story, which is a bona fide hit for f(x).To his credit, he at least maintains a sense of humor about his bad luck: in addition to the article quote above, his Twitter handle is @CancelledAgain.Fan site
