Jeremy Carver is (Born February 5, 1977) an American television writer and producer best known for his work on The CW series Supernatural, the Syfy series Being Human and, the DC Universe series Doom Patrol.

Personal life[edit]

Carver is married to fellow television producer and writer Anna Fricke. Carver and Fricke worked as co-developers of Being Human together from 2011 to 2014.[1]

Career[edit]

Carver's career began in 2004 when he served as a consulting writer on the failed television pilot Fearless, based upon the series of novels by Francine Pascal. In 2006 he wrote an episode of the CBS series Waterfront, but the series was canceled before its premiere and Carver's episode never aired.[2]

In 2007, Carver began work on Supernatural as a writer and story editor. He contributed twelve scripts over the next three years and became a co-producer during the show's fifth season but departed shortly afterwards to write and produce SyFy’s Being Human. Carver returned to Supernatural in 2012, following showrunner Sera Gamble’s departure. Carver acted as co-showrunner with executive producer Robert Singer from 2012 to 2016.[3] At the end of the show’s eleventh season, Carver announced he was stepping down from his position.[4]

In 2011, Carver served as the developer and co-showrunner for the North American remake of the series Being Human. Being Human ran for four seasons before its cancellation in 2014.[5]

Following his departure as Supernatural’s showrunner, Carver acted as writer, developer, and executive producer for The CW series Frequency, a television adaption of the 2000 film by the same name.[6] Frequency ran from 2016 to 2017.

In 2018 Carver was approached by DC Universe producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns to develop the planned DC Universe series Doom Patrol. Carver is currently serving as showrunner and executive producer for the show. Doom Patrol aired its first season in 2019.[7]
