IMDb profile

Michael Angeli (born August 29, 1961) is a producer, TV writer, author as well as movie-celebrity journalist. He began working on the Re-imagined Series as a writer, which lead to his appointment as co-executive producer in Season 3 and Season 4.

Angeli graduated from the University of Wisconsin with Bachelor Degrees in English and Psychology as well as a Master's Degree in Creative Writing. [1] He went on to become a journalist and has worked as a staff writer for magazines such as Esquire, Details, and Movieline on top of doing freelance work for publications such as The New York Times, Playboy, and Cosmopolitan.

He has interviewed actors Angelina Jolie, Joaquin Phoenix, and Charlize Theron and directors David Cronenberg and Henry Jaglom, among others. During his interview with Jaglom, the director reportedly threw Angeli out of his office when he discovered that the writer had never seen any of his films.

According to the Columbia Journalism Review, [2] Angeli once wrote a profile of Demi Moore for Esquire entitled "Last Pinup" which was "a breath-bating account in which the star undresses, the writer offers her $500 to kiss him, and she declines." The CJR article used this instance as one of many facts to bolster its argument that women (or "girls") in many men's magazines are "mostly ogled, ridiculed, or patronized."

Angeli's December 1995 Playboy Magazine profile of Courteney Cox was titled "Babe of the Year," and called her "TV's most adorable female star since Mary Tyler Moore." [3]

Angeli went on to write for television, working as an Executive Story Editor on Now and Again and as a Producer on Cover Me. While on Now and Again, he worked with Dark Angel Executive Producer Rene Echevarria, which lead to his writing several episodes for that show. He has also crafted scripts for Monk, Touching Evil and Medium.

Angeli co-authored the autobiography of Chyna (a.k.a., Joanie Laurer), a wrestler in the World Wrestling Federation. [4]
