Salon Monday 9/14: Writer/Exec Producer Tim Schlattmann from DEXTER & UNDER THE DOME

Once again, a guy from smalltown Nebraska is making his mark in television. (What is it about all the show-runners from Kearney, by the way?)

Tim Schlattmann is a three-time Emmy and five-time Writers Guild of America award nominee. Nebraska born and raised (Kearney), this former radio disc jockey and college professor’s writing credits include ABC’s number one hit Roseanne, Fox’s Get Real starring Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, the WB’s Smallville, and Showtime’s critically acclaimed Dexter.

After having been with Dexter for all eight of its seasons, the last two as an Executive Producer, Tim just wrapped the third season of CBS’s hit summer series Under The Dome in the same capacity as an Executive Producer. He’ll undoubtedly have stories for us about writing for another Nebraskan (and previous Salon guest and friend of the NCC), Marg Helgenberger, who guest starred in the Dome final season.


In 2008, Tim garnered his first two Writers Guild of America award nominations: one for best dramatic series and an individual nod for his episode of Dexter entitledThe Dark Defender. That same year, Dexter was also nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe in the best dramatic series category and received the prestigious Peabody Award. 2009, 2010 and 2011 brought Tim and the Dexter writing staff EmmyWriters Guild of America, and Golden Globe nominations once again.

Tim will share with us about all his shows, but he also promises a sneak peek at his crazy show, Sock Monkee Therapy, a comedy he created since his last Salon visit in 2011.

The September Salon will be a great time, welcoming back a terrific guest. Hope to see you on Monday, September 14th at the Culver.
