IMDb profile

Damon Lindelof is one of the show's creators and executive producers, and is currently the head writer of the show. He co-hosts the Official Lost Podcast with Carlton Cuse.



After creating the characters, the overall storyline, and the first two episodes of Lost along with J.J. Abrams, Lindelof has taken over as the head writer of the show, since Abrams has numerous other projects on his plate. Damon's previous experience includes being the writer of episodes of MTV's Undressed, Nash Bridges, Wasteland and Crossing Jordan and Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk (2006), a comic book miniseries; his first television writing job was with Wasteland. He is a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Lindelof is an avid Star Wars fan, as is Abrams.

Lindelof produced the 2009 Star Trek film which was directed by Abrams. In April 2009, it was announced that he will write the sequel to the film with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Personal quotes

"There are occasions where we basically say “What was Juliet's husband's first name?”, and if Gregg (Nations) is not sitting in his office we will log into Lostpedia to get that answer." - On Lostpedia

"Sometimes we get frustrated ourselves and decide it's time to download a big chunk of mythology. And then the audience says, 'I find this confusing and alienating and too weird.' So then we pull back, and they say, 'You're not giving us enough'." - On trying to satisfy the audience of Lost

"Here's what you won't see: Globetrotters, zombies, the guy Meredith Grey didn't choose, coconut radios, Laura Palmer, Jack laughing, Desmond running naked through the jungle, the Others' annual talent show, buttons, timers, electromagnetic anomalies, Cylons, cyclones, or clones, nanobots, Captain Jack Sparrow, and time travel." -- On the Season 3 premiere

"And considering I have now read Bad Twin, Gary Troup got exactly what he deserved." -- On the Identity of Turbine man

"I will probably be dragged through the streets and burned in effigy if fans have to wait another year for 'Lost' to come back. And who could blame them? Public sentiment may have swung toward the guild for now, but once the viewing audience has spent a month or so subsisting on 'America's Next Hottest Cop' and 'Celebrity Eating Contest,' I have little doubt that the tide will turn against us." -- On the effects of the WGA strike

"The greatest piece of popular fiction ever produced." -- Featured on the back of recent reprints of the graphic novel 'Watchmen'
