Eric Lewald and Julia Lewald are two of the premier writer-producers

in family and youth-oriented television, with over 700 produced credits.

They have been showrunners, together or individually, on 14 series,

including the world-wide number-one hit X-MEN: THE ANIMATED SERIES,

the breakthrough show that helped bring Marvel characters to TV and

movies and made Fox TV the number one network in kids' programming.

The Lewalds have developed series for Universal, MGM, Fox, and

Disney; for Ivan Reitman at Northern Lights; and for Spielberg and

Katzenberg at Dreamworks. At Sam Raimi's Renaissance Films, they

developed and supervised the writing for the 50-episode series Young

Hercules, starring Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling. Eric received an Emmy

nomination for producing the TV movie My Fair Madeline, while Julia won

an Environmental Media Award for her small-screen adaptation of Robert

Heinlein’s YA classic, Red Planet.

Eric recently published the behind-the-scenes book Previously on X-

MEN: The Making of an Animated Series (Jacobs-Brown, 2017), a

history and celebration of the creation of the landmark television show, told

by the showrunner, complete with illustrations, photographs, and Eric’s 36

interviews featuring the cast, writers, and artists who made it. This was

followed by Eric and Julia’s X-MEN: The Art and Making of an Animated

Series (Abrams, 2020), a complementary, large-format art book containing

over a thousand designs, cels, and other images from the series, as well as

original art created for the book by the series’ artists. neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
