Brad Wright is a Canadian television producer, screenwriter and actor. He is best known as the creator or co-creator of the television series Stargate SG-1 (with Jonathan Glassner), Stargate Atlantis (with Robert C. Cooper) and Stargate Universe (also with Cooper). He was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Before the inception of the Stargate franchise, he served as the co-executive producer and a writer of The Outer Limits. He has also written scripts for several other television series including Neon Rider, Adventures of the Black Stallion, The Odyssey, Highlander: The Series and Poltergeist: The Legacy.

Career[edit]

He has appeared twice in Stargate SG-1, as a studio executive in the 100th episode, "Wormhole X-Treme!", and as a parody of Star Trek's Scotty in a fantasy sequence in the 200th episode, "200".

In April 2007, in recognition of his efforts to promote Canadian writing talent, and to recognize his efforts as the primary creative writing force on the Stargate shows, Wright was presented with the inaugural "Showrunner Award" at the Canadian Screenwriting Awards in Toronto. In July of the same year, he won the 2007 Constellation Award in the category Best Overall 2006 Science Fiction Film or Television Script for the episode of Stargate SG-1 entitled "200".

In late March 2009, Wright was nominated for a Nebula Award for "Best Script." The nomination was for the season 5 Stargate Atlantis episode "The Shrine."[1]
