Profile Bio Text
Born in New York and raised in Los Angeles, to television producer Gerald W. Abrams and his wife Carol. He attended Sarah Lawrence College.
Abrams` first job in the movie business started when he was 16 when he wrote music for Don Dohler`s film Nightbeast. During his senior year at college, he teamed with a friend to write a feature film treatment. Purchased by Touchstone Pictures, the treatment was the basis for Taking Care of Business, Abrams` first produced film, which starred Charles Grodin and Jim Belushi. He followed that up with Regarding Henry, starring Harrison Ford, and Forever Young, starring Mel Gibson.
Abrams then collaborated with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Michael Bay on the summer 1998 blockbuster, Armageddon. In 2001 he co-wrote and produced the film Joy Ride. In 1998 he made his first foray into television with Felicity, which ran for four seasons on The WB Network, serving as the show`s co-creator (with Matt Reeves) and executive producer. Under his production company, Bad Robot, Abrams created and executive-produced ABC`s Alias and is co-creator (with Damon Lindelof) and executive producer of Lost. He also served as executive producer of What About Brian and Six Degrees, also on ABC. His work in Sci Fi has earned him recognition by TV Week as one of the most important creators in the genre today.
Abrams contributed in the writing process in Superman Flyby. He made his feature directorial debut in 2006 with Mission: Impossible III, starring Tom Cruise. He is also directing the upcoming 11th Star Trek movie. Abrams is also the producer of the 2008 monster movie, Cloverfield. His partnership with Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof is set to grow with the duo producing Star Trek together and also writing and producing an adaptation of Stephen King`s The Dark Tower series of novels.
In addition to writing and directing, he composed the theme music for Alias, the opening theme for Lost and co-wrote both theme songs for Felicity and Fringe.
Abrams signed deals with Warner Bros. for new television shows and Paramount Pictures for new films worth around $50 million.
It has been reported that Abrams will direct a "dark, children`s film" entitled Mystery On Fifth Avenue
