ADAM MAZER is the creator and writer of the new CW pilot Ghosts, to be produced by Ben Silverman's Reveille Prods. Ghosts is a one-hour drama about the personal and professional lives of the twenty-something operatives who work in the FBI's Special Surveillance Group (the SSG) an elite counterintelligence unit.

Prior to Breach, Mazer sold the family comedy Big Baby (co-written with Gregg Lichtenstein) to Warner Bros., with Neal H. Moritz and Richard Suckle producing and Raja Gosnell attached to direct.

Mazer was a founding partner of Point Blank Entertainment, where he was an associate producer on the outrageous ensemble comedy Super Troopers. The film was sold at the Sundance Film Festival and released in 2002 by Fox Searchlight.

Mazer's solo efforts include his screenplay The Amateur, which was set up with the Kennedy-Marshall Company. Based on true events, The Amateur tells the story of 19-year-old golfer Francis Ouimet's remarkable underdog victory at the 1913 U.S. Open. He also wrote the police corruption thriller Officer Down; the dark romantic comedy Absolute Faith; the comic-book fantasy adventure The Last Ride of Waterloo Clyde; and Shelter from the Storm, an adaptation of Stephen Miller's southern murder mystery novel A Woman in the Yard.

Upon graduation from Syracuse University, Mazer moved to Los Angeles and partnered with Bill Rotko. They sold their first screenplay, Freeze-a harrowing Antarctic action-adventure-to Columbia Pictures and Mandalay Films. They sold the crime drama High and Dry to Universal Pictures and also set up a television pilot for a high-tech police drama entitled Group One.
