About Robert McKee

Robert McKee, born 1941, is a creative writing instructor who is widely known for his popular "Story Seminar", which he developed when he was a professor at the University of Southern California. McKee is the author of a "screenwriters' bible" called Story: Substance, Structure, Style and the Principles of Screenwriting. Many of Hollywood's active screenwriters claim him as an inspiration.

McKee's other credits include writing and presenting the BBC series Filmworks, the Channel Four series 'Reel Secrets', the BAFTA Award-winning J'accuse Citizen Kane television program which he wrote and hosted, and the writing of Abraham, the four-hour mini-series on Turner Network Television (TNT) which starred Richard Harris, Barbara Hershey and Maximilian Schell.
