Ian BrierIan Brier has worked in television as a writer, producer, and director since first graduating from LIU Post's English program in 2000. As a Senior Producer for Showtime Networks, he creates original content and promos for the series "Dexter," "Homeland," "Episodes," "Weeds," and many others. Working in New York, Hollywood, and wherever filming takes him, he sees productions through from script-to-screen, reaching millions of viewers on cable and the web.

Before joining Showtime, he wrote and produced original documentaries for Discovery Channel, History Channel, and National Geographic Television. His credits include "Inside: Gang Cops," an investigative special for National Geographic, and "Treasure Quest," a primetime documentary series for Discovery Channel.

"The study of English at Post is really the study of ideas, and how they're communicated. Working in any creative field demands that you be able to crystallize your own ideas, and deliver them in a way powerful enough to cut through the noise. My mentors on campus gave me a fundamental appreciation for storytelling, and the creative toolkit necessary to thrive in an extremely competitive medium."
