TODD WENDEL

writer, producer and director

An award winning writer, producer and director, Todd has traveled the world chasing stories of both relevance and heart. From embedding with military contractors at the height of the Iraq War, to leading one of the first expeditions in search of the Tomb of Ghengis Khan, to examining the drug trade along the US/Mexico border, his stories seek to find humanity in the most inhumane places.

Todd’s first documentary for the acclaimed PBS series NOVA, World in the Balance; a two part series investigating population and its effect on the environment, was awarded the Cine Golden Eagle. Recently he served as writer and producer for The Discovery Channel’s critically acclaimed series The Last Alaskans.

Todd has written and produced films for The National Geographic Channel, The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, and the PBS series NOVA. He holds degrees in Finance from Boston University and Film Studies from Emerson College.
