David Schulner started his television career on Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz’s beloved “Once and Again.” Other credits include the award-winning first year of “Desperate Housewives,” “Everwood,” “Kings,” “Tell Me You Love Me” on HBO, “Do No Harm” which he created and was showrunner, and “Emerald City” for which he was also showrunner. His 2008 spec script, “The Oaks” started a bidding war between CBS, ABC and FOX, ultimately being picked up straight-to-series by FOX. Then the writers strike happened. ITV in Great Britain successfully relaunched the show as the critically acclaimed series, “Marchlands” followed by season two, “Lightfields.” David is currently Executive Producer/Showrunner of NBC’s “New Amsterdam” and is developing new projects under his fourth overall deal with Universal Television. As a playwright, David’s plays have been produced off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theater, The Old Globe, Long Wharf Theater and at Sundance. David is also the creator of CLONE, a popular comic published by Image/Skybound – Robert Kirkman’s (The Walking Dead) imprint.
