Early life[edit]

Lenkov was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1964 and he studied film at Concordia University in the 1980's. His family includes a younger brother, Jeff, who is a California-based lawyer, sports agent, and professor.[1]

Career and Awards[edit]

Lenkov's notable work includes the TV series La Femme Nikita, Hawaii Five-0, 24 and CSI: NY and films such as R.I.P.D., Demolition Man and Son in Law. In comics, he wrote R.I.P.D. and Fort: Prophet of the Unexplained, for which he was nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Best Illustrated Narrative. In 2005, he was nominated for an Emmy Award for his work on the hit TV series 24. In 2009, he wrote an episode of CSI: NY for which acclaimed actor Ed Asner was nominated for an Emmy for Guest Star. In 2011, Hawaii Five-0 was awarded Best New Drama at the People's Choice Awards. Other awards include a CAPE Award for Best Drama for Hawaii Five-0, A Media Access Award for his work on CSI: NY and a Huntington Disease Honor for an episode of The District.

In 2010, Lenkov launched his reboot of the long-running CBS series Hawaii Five-0 currently airing on CBS and in over 200 countries around the world. He also created "Metajets" and "Kung Fu Dino Posse", two new animated TV shows. Recently released on DVD and Blu-ray is the NBC mini-series Lenkov executive produced entitled XIII, based on the popular graphic novel and video game by the same name. XIII stars Stephen Dorff and Val Kilmer. A new cable TV series based on the mini-series XIII began airing in 2011. Also in 2011, a feature film based on R.I.P.D. began shooting. R.I.P.D. starred Jeff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds, and Kevin Bacon, and was released by Universal in summer 2013. His claim to fame at CBS is his highly valued ability to reboot old franchises and make them successful 21st century shows.

Lenkov's second comic series Fort: Prophet of the Unexplained was also recently put into development at Universal with Robert Zemeckis attached to direct.

Sports team ownership[edit]

In May 2019, the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL) were sold by long-time owner Robert C. Wetenhall to CFL, becoming a league-owned team. Before and after the sale, the CFL began actively looking for new owners to purchase the team. In June 2019, it was reported that the CFL had narrowed its search to a single group consisting of Lenkov and his brother Jeff.[1][2]
