Alan McCullough has written extensively for a variety of Canadian and US television series and is now in his second year with Sanctuary as Co-Executive Producer and Writer.

Starting out as a performer, Alan appeared Off-Broadway and in numerous TV and film projects, including Paramount/Showtime’s Aldrich Ames: Traitor Within (with Timothy Hutton) and Lion’s Gate Films' American Psycho (with Christian Bale).  Alan then turned his attention to writing, graduating from the Canadian Film Centre’s Prime Time Television Resident Program in 2002. That same year, Alan was awarded a CTV Fellowship to the Banff Television Festival, and his screen story Zamboni Guy took home the top prize at Telefilm Canada's "Pitch This!" Competition at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Alan was then hired to write for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Chilly Beach, Family Channel's Naturally, Sadie, and SCI FI Channel’s Stargate SG-1, where he wrote a total of nine episodes, including the show’s record-breaking 206th episode, “Company of Thieves”.  Following that, Alan served as Supervising Producer on Stargate Atlantis, where he was nominated for a 2008 Gemini award for his episode “Tabula Rasa”, and recently won a 2009 Leo Award for his episode “The Queen”. His most recent Leo nomination came last year, for the Sanctuary episode “Veritas”.

Alan currently splits his time between Vancouver and Toronto with his wife Teresa and grumpy dog Monty.
