Role: Director, Writer, Executive Producer

Robert C. Cooper has written and produced multiple episodes of Stargate SG-1, served as the series showrunner, and was co-creator of the hit spin-off Stargate Atlantis.  He made his directing debut in season nine of SG-1 with the episode "Crusade," and also wrote and directed the series finale episode “Unending,” which brought the award-winning show to a close.  The record-breaking 10 year run earned the title of ‘longest continuous running science fiction series in the world.’  As well as continuing his executive producing role, he wrote and directed an episode of Stargate Atlantis in season three entitled “Sateda,” “Doppelganger” in season four and “Vegas” in season five.

Cooper wrote, produced and directed the immensely successful Stargate: The Ark of Truth, the first of two direct-to-DVD movies for MGM Television. Along with Brad Wright, he produced the second DVD movie Stargate: Continuum, which was written by Brad Wright and directed by Martin Wood.

Cooper and Wright are currently in production with the latest in the Stargate franchise, Stargate Universe, starring Robert Carlyle.

Cooper began working in television as a story editor on the series PSI Factor.  His work has been nominated for several awards for writing both television and feature films including two Hugo Award nominations.  His produced work includes the screenplay for The Impossible Elephant, a family film for Edge Entertainment, and an adaptation of the book Best Actress that was produced by E! Entertainment Television.

Cooper and Brad Wright were presented with The Special Achievement Award at the 2009 Leo Awards.
