Phil Lord and Chris Miller are American film and television writers, producers, directors, actors and former animators. Lord and Miller met each other while at Dartmouth College. They were noted[by whom?] for being two of the youngest showrunners in the industry at the time that Clone High began airing.

In an interview with Robert K. Elder for his book The Best Film You've Never Seen, Phil Lord stated that "in an animated feature, you remake the movie three or four times, and it's really easy to get bummed out that the way you did it before didn't get green lit, didn't get paid, and you're making a totally different version of that movie."[1]

Early life[edit]

Phil Lord is the son of a Cuban refugee.[2]

While working as animators, Lord and Miller failed a drawing test to work on The Rugrats Movie. The duo later pitched cartoon ideas for various television networks before creating Clone High.
