Ronald D. Moore
Showrunner/Executive Producer at Tall Ship Productions


Ronald D. Moore is the Showrunner/Executive Producer of Apple’s space drama, “For All Mankind.”  Deeply rooted in the sci-fi genre, Moore got his start in the entertainment business on the writing staff of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” During his tenure there, he wrote or co-wrote 27 episodes, including the two-hour series finale “All Good Things,” for which he won a Hugo Award in 1994. That same year, Ronald was honored with an Emmy® Award nomination and was eventually promoted to Producer.

In 1994, Ronald joined the writing staff of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” as Supervising Producer and was elevated to Co-Executive Producer the following year. Ronald spent five seasons on the series until the end of its successful run in 1999.

Ronald also served briefly as Executive Consultant on the USA cable series “Good vs. Evil” before joining the staff of “Roswell” as Executive Producer. After two seasons in that post, he took over the reins as Showrunner from Creator Jason Katims in its final year.

In the fall of 2002, Ronald was named Showrunner and Executive Producer of HBO’s critically acclaimed one-hour drama “Carnivàle.”

In 2003, Ronald created the re-imagined series, “Battlestar Galactica,” and served as Showrunner/Executive Producer of the series, which ran for four seasons. “Battlestar Galactica” was honored with a prestigious Peabody® Award and twice as an official selection of the AFI (American Film Institute) top television programs for 2005 and 2006. In 2006, Ronald was nominated for an Emmy® Award for Best Writing in a Dramatic Series, and in 2008, he won an Emmy® for the “Battlestar Galactica” webisodes.

In 2008, Ronald co-wrote the pilot to the spin-off series “Caprica,” a drama set 58 years before the events of “Battlestar Galactica.” He served as Executive Producer for the run of the series.

In 2010, Ronald’s production company, Tall Ship Productions, signed an overall deal with Sony Television to develop and produce television series.  Under the Tall Ship banner, Ronald is currently producing the Golden Globes®-nominated series “Outlander” for Starz, and served as Executive Producer on the Amazon/Channel 4 anthology series, “Philip K.
