Born November 25, 1953, New York, USA - American writer, screenwriter, director and producer.
His father Warren Frost was a theater actor. The Frost family moved first to Los Angeles and then to St. Paul (Minneapolis), where Mark's father became a theater instructor at the University of Minnesota and artistic director of the Chimera Theater. All the children of Warren Frost, in one way or another, followed in their father's footsteps: Lindsay Frost became an actress, Scott became a writer, author of detective novels and the book "The Autobiography of FBI Agent Dale Cooper", and Mark began writing plays and scripts, and in the future also became a writer.
Mark enrolled at the private Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and began studying acting and directing there, earning a bachelor's degree there. In 1975, Frost took part in writing the scripts for some episodes of the fantastic television series The Six Million Dollar Man, but soon returned to Minneapolis, where he began writing plays for the Guthrie Theater. A few years later, Mark manages to get a job as a writer and director for some episodes of the popular drama series "Hill Street Blues" on NBC.
In 1986, Mark Frost meets the film director David Lynch. Frost and Lynch have a lot of ideas for joint projects, but for one reason or another they fail to implement them. In 1987, the film The Believers was released, based on a script by Frost, who revised Nicholas Code's novel. Following the success of the film, ABC gives the green light to Frost and Lynch to create the iconic Twin Peaks television series. The following two joint projects also failed: the series "American Chronicles" and "Live". After that, Frost and Lynch ended their cooperation.
Frost, left alone, tried to repeat the success of "Believers" and himself filmed the novel by Frank Golbally and Robert McLean "Storyville", which failed at the US box office. After that, Mark Frost ends his career as a director and film producer.
In the 1910s, Frost wrote several books on the history of golf, as well as several fiction novels.
