An Emmy-winning writer-producer for some of the most popular television dramas of the late '90s and 2000s, Howard Gordon brought his talent for creating gripping, imaginative scenarios to such shows as "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002), "24" (Fox, 2001-2010) and "Homeland" (Showtime, 2011- ). Gordon worked his way up the creative ladder with frequent writing and producing partner Alex Gansa, who collaborated with him on "Beauty and the Beast" (CBS, 1987-1990) and "X-Files" before Gordon split to create several well-regarded if low-rated science fiction series. The rating juggernaut that was "24" took up much of Gordon's attention during the new millennium, after which he rejoined Gansa to create "Homeland" (Showtime, 2011- ). The action-thriller, which followed a FBI agent's quest to discover the truth about an Iraq War POW's allegiances, swept the 2012 Emmys and established the pair as new leading figures in TV drama. The depth and scope of Gordon's best work underscored his status as a one of the more acclaimed creative figures in 21st century television.
