J. Michael Straczynski is considered one of the most prolific and highly-regarded writers currently working in the television and comic-book industry. He served as executive producer and creator of "Babylon 5," which ran successfully for five years in syndication and "Crusade," which ran on the TNT Network in 1999. He also wrote and executive produced the pilot movie for a new "Babylon 5" sequel series titled "The Legend of the Rangers" slated to air on the SciFi Channel this month.

Straczynski recently adapted his popular comic "Rising Stars" into a feature screenplay for MGM and Atlas Entertainment, with the film tentatively set for production later this year. He also wrote and produced "Murder, She Wrote," a television movie for CBS; launched a second comics title for "Top Cow," and "Midnight Nation" then debuted his own radio drama series, "The City of Dreams," on the Sci-Fi Channel. Straczynski also took over as writer on "The Amazing Spider-Man" for Marvel Comics. For 2002, he has another series in development for the SciFi Channel entitled "Polaris."

In 1996 and 1998, he won the coveted Hugo award for Best Dramatic Presentation, the most important award in the science fiction genre and was twice awarded the Space Frontier Foundation's "Vision of the Future" Award. Straczynski is also the author of the nonfiction book, "The Complete Book of Scriptwriting", which has become one of Writer's Digest Books best-selling titles.
