Frank Spotnitz in 2006.

Frank Spotnitz (born November 17, in Japan) is an American television writer and producer, who joined “The X-Files” as a writer in 1994. Spotnitz quickly became involved not only in developing the series’ stand-alone episodes, but its elaborate “mythology” storyline dealing with government conspiracy and aliens. He directed two episodes and wrote or co-wrote more than 40 installments, including the Emmy-nominated “Memento Mori” (with Chris Carter, Vince Gilligan, and John Shiban) in 1997. Other honors accorded Spotnitz for his work on the series include Golden Globe wins for Best Dramatic Series, a Peabody Award, and three Emmy nominations for Outstanding Drama Series.

Spotnitz worked on “The X-Files” for eight of its nine seasons, including four years as executive producer and three as president of Carter’s Ten Thirteen Productions.

Spotnitz recently worked on The X-Files: I Want to Believe, with Chris Carter. The second 'X-Files' film was in the vein of the standalone "Monster of the Week" episodes of the series, unlike the previous film which was a "mytharc" story.
