Richard Timothy "Tim" Kring (born July 9, 1957, in El Dorado County, California), is an American screenwriter and television producer, best known for his creation of the drama series Strange World, Crossing Jordan, Heroes, and Touch.
He got his start as a screenwriter writing for the TV show Knight Rider. One of his earlier projects was co-writer for an episode of Misfits of Science, which, like his later project Heroes, featured super-powered humans as a main theme. Another early project was Teen Wolf Too, co-written by Jeph Loeb. The two would later re-team when producing Heroes. Kring also co-wrote the 2010 book Shift: A Novel (Gates of Orpheus Trilogy) with Dale Peck.
After the cancellation of Heroes in 2010, Kring created the TV series Touch, a drama concentrating on a father (Kiefer Sutherland) who discovers his mute son can predict events. The series premiered on January 25, 2012, on Fox.
