An Emmy-winning writer-producer for some of the most popular television dramas of the late 1990s and 2000s, Alex Gansa 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- ). Gansa worked his way up the creative ladder with frequent writing and producing partner Howard Gordon, who collaborated with him on "Beauty and the Beast" (CBS, 1987-1990) and "X-Files" before Gansa split to write and produce for "Entourage" (HBO, 2004-2011) and "Numb3rs" (CBS, 2005-2010). The pair reunited on the rating juggernaut that was "24" before creating "Homeland" (Showtime, 2011- ) which followed a FBI agent's quest to discover the truth about an Iraq War POW's allegiances. The action-thriller swept the 2012 Emmys and established the pair as new leading figures in TV drama. The depth and scope of Gansa's best work underscored his status as a one of the more acclaimed creative figures in 21st century television.
