Nick Santora

Writer and Co-Executive Producer of the hit Fox drama, "Prison Break," Nick Santora is a born-and-bred New Yorker.

After graduating from Columbia Law School in 1996, Nick practiced law full-time in New York City until 2001 when he moved to Los Angeles with his family to pursue a career as a professional writer. This decision was spurred by Nick's first screenplay winning "Best Screenplay of the Competition" at the 2001 New York International Independent Film Festival.

Since arriving in California, Nick has written and/or produced for several television series such as "The Sopranos," "Law & Order" and "The Guardian." He has enjoyed writing for a living substantially more than litigating for a living.

Nick is thrilled to be able to share his life with his wonderful wife and their beautiful daughter.
