Writer and producer Jeff Pinkner began his career by writing an episode of the hit David E. Kelley show "Ally McBeal." He went on to write for the investigative show "Profiler" and the stockbroker drama "The $treet." After this, he took on his first big series, producing and writing many of the episodes for the hit action show "Alias," created by J.J. Abrams and starring Jennifer Garner as Sydney Bristow, an international spy. After this, Pinkner was the executive producer and sometime writer for the addictive serial drama "Lost," starring Matthew Fox and Michael Emerson, among others, as the survivors of a plane crash forced to live together and form some kind of community on a remote island. "Lost" went off the air with a puzzling final episode in 2010, and Pinkner kept busy producing and writing for another J.J. Abrams show, "Fringe," a drama about a female FBI agent.
