Biography[edit]

Eglee was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and grew up in North Haven, Connecticut and Eastham, Massachusetts. He was graduated cum laude from Williston Academy and received his B.A. in English from Yale University. After a brief stint teaching film history at Yale, Eglee moved to California and worked for Roger Corman, where he served in a variety of production capacities and met then production designer James Cameron. With Cameron, Eglee wrote Piranha II: The Spawning. Later, he wrote and produced the mutant rodent film Deadly Eyes.

In 1984 Eglee joined the writing staff of St. Elsewhere as story editor. He went on to become writer and supervising producer of the ABC series Moonlighting. At Twentieth Century Fox Television, Eglee co-wrote and executive-produced the one-hour television pilot, Rockenwagner.

Joining Steven Bochco Productions in 1991, Eglee wrote and co-executive produced the ABC series Civil Wars for two seasons, during which time he also wrote for L.A. Law. In 1993, he co-created and executive-produced the short-lived ABC series, The Byrds of Paradise, starring Timothy Busfield, Seth Green and Jennifer Love Hewitt. After the show's ending, Eglee joined NYPD Blue during its second season, as writer and co-executive producer. In 1995 he co-created Murder One with Steven Bochco and was the show's executive producer. Again with Bochco, Eglee co-created and executive-produced Total Security for ABC starring James Belushi and James Remar.

Eglee and James Cameron teamed up again to co-create Dark Angel, a futuristic drama starring Jessica Alba, set in a dystopic world of 21st-century Seattle.

In 2003 Eglee joined the crew of FX police drama The Shield as an executive producer.

In 2007 Eglee joined Showtime drama series Dexter as a writer and executive producer for the third season. He remained a writer and executive producer for the fourth season in 2009.

In 2010 he became a writer and executive producer for the television adaptation of The Walking Dead. Frank Darabont was also an executive producer; he and Eglee had previously collaborated on The Shield.
