Award-winning writer, producer and directorJohn Wildermarks his novel fiction debut Fall 2015 with the contemporary murder mysteryNobody Dies In Hollywood. Wilder's exceptional abilities to blend criminal intrigue against the rough-and-tumble of the Hollywood scene come as no surprise to his fans.

Among the numerous, notable projects Wilder helped create are:James Michener'sCentennial(Writers Guild Award, Best Long-Form DramaandGolden Globe nomination)); mini-seriesReturn To Lonesome Dove(Western Writers of America AwardandWestern Heritage Award); top-rated seriesSpenser: For Hire; and the number-one rated seriesThe Streets of San Francisco, for which Wilder received aWriters Guild nominationand twoEmmy nominations for Best Dramatic Series.
