Meet Joel Anderson Thompson
Joel Anderson Thompson, TV writer-producer, instructor, and Invisalign wearer: Between projects he gives seminars on writing and is a part-time instructor at USC, UCLA-Extension, and other institutions. Joel brazenly escaped medical school and by some miracle if not well-executed extortion made his way into NYU to receive an MFA in writing for film, theater, and television. On the path to becoming a professional writer, his day jobs ranged from story analyst for Icon Pictures, Village Roadshow, and Gerber Productions, to teaching in the Compton Public School System, content writing for e-commerce and being a professional mayonnaise taster (while secretly hating mayonnaise).
His writing credits include “Boomtown,” “House MD,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Falling Skies,” Co-Creating and showrunning “Superstition,” Co-Executive Producer on “Krypton”. Joel also was a Co-Executive Producer on “Roswell, NM” while writing on Apple TV’s upcoming third installment of the WWII limited series “Band of Brothers”. Presently, he has two projects in development. One is a psychological-crime drama with Macro Studios. The other is a historical sports drama. He has also sold pitches to various networks including CBS, HBO Films, and Disney’s Stage 9 Productions.
