Rob Thompson is an award winning screenwriter, director and producer. His name appears in the credits of such iconic TV series as Northern Exposures, LA Law and Monk. He has won an Emmy, an Emmy Nomination, the Director's Guild award for Best Dramatic TV Director and a Writers Guild of America award for best original screenplay… and many more awards in his field.
After being admitted to law school but deciding not to go and a stint in the Marine Corps Reserves, Thompson decided that his destiny lay in the film business. He was accepted at UCLA film school with the intention of making documentaries which he did. He also made a short experimental film, SWLA, which is still an underground cult classic.
His big break came at age 23 when he wrote the screenplay for "Hearts of the West". It was made into a film starring Jeff Bridges, Andy Griffith and Blythe Danner.
Thompson now lives on his ranch in Northern NM where he is deep into writing his first work of fiction… a trilogy
