Bob Dearden

writer iZombie, Play It Again, Dick

Bob Dearden is a former forestry worker and decorated free-throw shooter hailing from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He received an MFA from The University of Texas at Austin in 2013, and during his studies submitted multiple entries to the AFF Screenplay Competition (results included semi-finalist, second rounder, and abject failure).

During his time in Austin, Bob began an internship with ex-collegiate football star and current acclaimed television showrunner Rob Thomas. That experience led directly to Bob’s first job in Hollywood, on the Veronica Mars movie, as well as his first writing credit, for the Veronica Mars spinoff web series, Play It Again, Dick. He is currently working as a story editor on the third season of The CW’s iZombie, which is a pretty awesome show. You should check it out if you haven’t already.
