Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Wonder Years.
Todd W. Langen

Todd W. Langen was born in Detroit and earned a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan. He was 30 years old and working on the Space Shuttle for Hughes Aircraft Company when he decided that what he really wanted to do with his life was to be a screenwriter. His first sale was an episode of Pursuit of Happiness, a television comedy series that lasted less than two months.

He soon became a regular writer of The Wonder Years. His biggest success would come when Langen was hired to work on the film adaptation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The original treatment of 1990’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was written by Bobby Herbeck; Langen was called in to do a “Page One rewrite,” that is, a complete revision based on a screenplay that a studio had deemed interesting but unworkable as submitted. Langen and Herbeck did not work together and did not meet until the film opened. He is listed first in the credits. Langen would return to write the sequel (“The Secret of The Ooze”) in 1991.

  • “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (1990)
