Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit are writer-producers whose television credits include Central Park, the Peabody-nominated One Day at a Time, The Tick, Super Fun Night, and 1600 Penn. Their show Ultra Violet & Blue Demon, starring internationally famous luchador, Blue Demon Jr., was recently ordered to series at Disney Channel. They are currently developing multiple shows under their overall with 20th Television. On the film side, Dan and Benji wrote Pokémon Detective Pikachu, which went on to gross 433 million dollars at the box office and was the first adaptation of a video game to receive a "Fresh" score on Rotten Tomatoes. Among the pair's upcoming feature work is writing the screenplays for Addams Family 2 at MGM and Night Wolf for STX, with Kevin Hart attached to star. In 2019, the duo were spotlighted as one of Variety's "10 Screenwriters to Watch." Dan and Benji met and began writing together while completing their undergraduate degrees at Brown University and have been writing-producing partners since. They are repped by 3Arts, UTA and Jackoway Tyerman.
