Bob Gale Biography

Bob Gale is an Oscar-nominated Screenwriter-Producer-Director, best known as co-creator, co-writer and co-producer of Back to the Future and its sequels. Gale was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. in Cinema from the University of Southern California in 1973, where he met and began his association with his longtime collaborator, Robert Zemeckis. Gale has written or co-written over thirty screenplays and his other film credits include 1941, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Used Cars, Trespass and Interstate 60, the latter which he directed. In addition to his film and television work, and being the ‚ÄúGatekeeper‚ÄĚ for the BTTF Franchise, Gale has written comic books including Spider-Man, Batman and IDW's Back to the Future title, thus proving to his father that he did not waste hours and hours reading comics in his youth. He has given talks on screenwriting in colleges across the USA,and enjoys meeting fans at Comic Conventions and Back to the Future events. He has also served as an Expert Witness in over twenty-five plagiarism lawsuits, even though this has occasionally required him to wear a suit and tie. When he‚Äôs not in production, writing, or wasting time on the internet, he actually does take out the trash, even when his wife doesn‚Äôt ask (well, sometimes he does). Gale lives in California with his wife and dog. Back to the Future The Musical is his first foray into writing for the stage.
