American television writer and producer Elizabeth Sarnoff is most renowned for her work on the acclaimed shows "Deadwood" and "Lost." Sarnoff got her start in 2001 writing scripts for episodes of "NYPD Blue" and another New York City-based procedural drama, the short-lived series "Big Apple." The following year, she wrote a hnadful of episodes of the investigative drama "Crossing Jordan," on which she worked with producer Damon Lindelof, who would later become a collaborator on "Lost." In 2004, Sarnoff joined the creative team of the lauded David Milch-created HBO period drama "Deadwood" as both writer and producer, but she departed the series after two seasons. Signing on to the popular show "Lost" in 2005, Sarnoff proved to be a key writer during the second season, often working with Christina M. Kim, and later became more involved on the production end of the enigmatic series, staying with it, eventually as an executive producer, until its dramatic 2010 finale. For Sarnoff's sterling work on the show, producer J.J. Abrams named a character after her on another of his hit series, "Fringe." More significantly, in 2012 Abrams reteamed with Sarnoff on the spooky small-screen mystery "Alcatraz," starring Sam Neill and "Lost"'s Jorge Garcia, of which Sarnoff was one of the co-creators.
