Screenwriter and Michigan native Doug Miro, with longtime collaborator Carlo Bernard, has written screenplays for Harvey Weinstein, Steven Spielberg, and Jerry Bruckheimer during the span of his two-decade career. Currently, he is a creator and executive producer of the Netflix series Narcos. Miro and Bernard began their careers working as assistants for film director, screenwriter, and producer Michael Mann. In that role, the pair benefitted from “reading every script in town,” and wrote Motor City, a film noir set in Detroit. The film was purchased by George Clooney’s production company, and while never produced, became an “industry calling card” that catapulted their careers. Miro and Bernard’s screenplays include The Great Raid (2005), The Uninvited (2009), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010), Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010), and Tintin (2011). Miro is a graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts and Stanford University.
