Growing up speaking Spanish, Greek and English at home, Spiro developed an early interest in language, which inspired him to write. His first foray into screenwriting was as a young boy, when he wrote a script for his Star Wars figures where they battled his sister’s giant, menacing Barbie dolls—and he’s been writing ever since. He won Best Original Screenplay at the Ohio Independent Film Festival for his first feature script, a character-driven ensemble piece. The prize money was enough to cover one month’s rent at the time, and more importantly encouraged him to keep writing. His professional TV writing career began in comedy, writing episodes of ABC’s George Lopez; then he co-created and co-wrote the animated sci-fi/zombie web series Chadam, a cult-fav based on the eponymous character. He’s a graduate of NBC’s Writers on the Verge Program, which ultimately opened the door for him to spend two seasons writing on NBC’s Grimm. He also wrote on the CW’s Arrow for a season. He’s sold three pilots, and written a psychological horror feature for Mar Vista. He’s currently developing a pilot for a studio. To help inspire the next generation of writers, Spiro created and produces the “Intro to TV Writing” panel at San Diego’s Comic-Con, currently in its ninth year. Spiro co-chairs the WGA’s LGBTQ+ Committee. He tweets about his Star Wars obsession, as well as writing, chocolate and anything geeky at @spirographo
