JJ Abrams is the writer and director of the sci-fi thriller f "Super 8."

JJ Abrams is the founder of Bad Robot Productions and one of the most influential writer/directors working in Hollywood today. He has made a huge mark in both television and features. Formed in 2001, Bad Robot is partnered with Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Studios and has produced films and television series such as "Cloverfield," "Star Trek," "Morning Glory," ABC's "Alias" and "Lost," and the current FOX series "Fringe."

Born in New York and raised in Los Angeles, Abrams attended Sarah Lawrence College. After graduation, he sold a treatment to Disney and began working as a screenwriter. He wrote or co-wrote such films as "Regarding Henry," "Forever Young," "Armageddon" and "Joy Ride."

In 1998, Abrams moved his attention away from features and co-created his first television series, "Felicity," with collaborator and longtime friend Matt Reeves. Abrams served as Executive Producer for the series' acclaimed four-season run on The WB. Additionally, Abrams created and executive produced "Alias" for ABC, and co-created (with Damon Lindelof) and executive produced the mega-hit supernatural mystery series "Lost."

"Lost" was a rare combination, both critically adored and hugely popular. In 2005, Abrams received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series for the pilot, as well as the Outstanding Drama Series award for "Lost." Abrams also composed the theme music for "Alias," "Fringe," and "Lost," and co-wrote the theme song for "Felicity."

Currently, Abrams serves as executive producer of "Fringe," which he co-created with Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman in 2008. While he remains a powerful television producer, Abrams has focused his own creative energies back on big-screen filmmaking. He is currently producing sequels for both "Mission: Impossible" and "Star Trek."
