Alec’s television credits include Seinfeld where he was a writer and executive producer, and Curb Your Enthusiasm where he currently serves as a writer, executive producer and director, and for which he was nominated.
His feature film work includes writing the screenplays for THE CAT IN THE HAT (which was made into a terrible film) and EUROTRIP (which he produced and co-directed and is excellent.) His most recent writing and producing credit is THE DICTATOR, starring Sacha Baron Cohen and scheduled for release this May. He has also done extensive rewriting, having worked on films for Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, Will Smith, Ivan Reitman and Robert Zemeckis. Alec has been nominated for numerous Emmy awards, a WGA Award, a DGA award and a Razzie (yes, for THE CAT IN THE HAT, it’s that bad.)
Check out this clip on YouTube from one of Alec’s panels last year in which he discussed the story process for Curb Your Enthusiasm. We’re thrilled he’ll be joining us again in 2012!
