Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer
Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer are an American screenwriting and producing duo. They have generally worked in the genres of science fiction and fantasy. They served as showrunners for the TV shows Smallville, Melrose Place and Shadowhunters, and have also been involved in the shows No Ordinary Family, Alphas, Defiance, Dominion and Guilt. Slavkin has occasionally directed episodes of the TV series in which they are involved.
From 2003 to 2009, they wrote 24 episodes of Smallville, and received story credit for another two episodes. Slavkin also directed two of the show's episodes. They also helped with the show's production, eventually serving as showrunners for Smallville in its eighth season, from 2008 to 2009, along with Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson, after the departure of original showrunners and series creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.
They served as showrunners of the Freeform supernatural drama series Shadowhunters for seasons two and three, replacing series creator Ed Decter, who left the show over creative differences. During that time, the two wrote four of the show's episodes, and Slavkin directed two episodes.
