Paul Guyot

Paul Guyot's first paid writing gig was the David E. Kelley created SNOOPS, about female P.I.’s whom David had lick whipped cream off each other during Sweeps Week. In spite of this ill-omened debut, Guyot has gone on to write and produce nearly 300 hours of television, including FELICITY, JUDGING AMY, LEVERAGE, THE LIBRARIANS, and NCIS: NEW ORLEANS. NatGeo beat out several networks in a fierce bidding war for Guyot’s original pitch THE BLACK 22’s—based on the true story of the first African-American squad of detectives in St. Louis, MO. After a year of development, Guyot took the project back due to creative differences, and is now writing the story as a feature with David Oyelowo attached to star. He experienced all nine circles of Hell when he co-wrote GEOSTORM, a feature which—thanks to some rabid fans in Indonesia—grossed over $220 million. When he isn’t writing, Guyot enjoys golf, cycling, fishing, and fabulous meals in amazing restaurants. He has authored several award-winning short stories. His only social media presence (which he believes is neither social nor media) is Instagram.
