Javier Grillo-Marxuach is a prolific writer of television, movies, comic books, essays, and interactive media best known as one of the Emmy Award-winning producers of Lost, and as creator of the the comic book and ABC Family television series The Middleman. Having just wrapped work as consulting producer on season 2 of the hit MTV series The Shannara Chronicles, Javi is currently developing projects for both broadcast and cable, as well as feature film. Javier is also co-host and co-creator (with fellow writer/producer/Puerto Rican, Jose Molina) of the “Children of Tendu” podcast, an educational series which aims to teach newcomers how to navigate the entertainment industry with decency and integrity. As part of his ongoing efforts to support and encourage emerging writers, Javi is not only an avid participant of the WGA’s Mentor program, but also worked to institute the Grillo-Marxuach Family Scholarship, which provides financial aid and mentorship to students attending the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts Masters Degree in Screenwriting with a focus on the Latino experience. Additionally, Javi’s book of essays “Shoot This One” – a dishy, frequently far-too-revealing, but mostly helpful and informative, memoir of his 20 years in the television industry – is currently available in paperback and Kindle.
“We are excited to team with Meltdown Comics for our monthly video streaming series A Conversation With…to present the extremely gifted – and very funny – Javier Grillo-Marxuach, a creative powerhouse whose work is fast becoming legend,” said Tralins.
