Peter Lance

Biography:

Peter Lance is a five-time Emmy-winning investigative reporter now working as a screenwriter and novelist. With a Masters Degree from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and a J.D. from Fordham University School of Law, Lance spent the first 15 years of his career as a print reporter and network correspondent. In 1981 Lance became Investigative Correspondent for ABC News. Lance was a member of the first American crew into Indochina after the end of the Vietnam War, he chased rebel insurgents through Laos and members of the Gambino Family through the toxic wastelands of New Jersey, he tracked knife-happy surgeons in the Deep South, and nuclear terrorists through the twisted streets of Antwerp.

Then, in 1987, he took a break from non-fiction. Lance came to L.A. and began working as a writer and story editor for Michael Mann on two of his acclaimed series: Crime Story and Miami Vice. In 1989 he became the co-executive producer and "show runner" on the fourth season of Wiseguy and in 1993 he co-created Missing Persons. Following the 9/11 attacks Lance began investigating the origins of the FBI's original probe of World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Ahmed Yousef.
