DRUDGE RETORT COPUBLISHER
A native of New York, Emmy Award-winning writer Jonathan Bourne began his writing career at UCLA's School of Theater, where he wrote and directed Catcher! a musical based on J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye. After settling the landmark lawsuit out of court, Mr. Bourne embarked on a career as a TV writer.
After writing for Carmen Electra, Keenen Ivory Wayans and Anne Robinson, he
decided to venture into motion pictures, authoring Britney, Baby One More
Time. The screwball comedy made its debut at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. Go figure.
Currently a producer on Fox's The Moment of Truth, Mr. Bourne plans to retire from the entertainment industry at the end of 2008 to work in his library and
minor league baseball team in Massachusetts.
