Welcome to peterhankoff.com

I am a writer, director and producer who’s spent the last 10 years making documentary programs for the likes of National Geographic, History Channel and Discovery Channel.

I began as a professional writer when I was paid $25 for an article published in FILM COMMENT.  Investing wisely, I bought more typing paper and continued writing.

I have had dozens of screenplays and projects in development at the major studios and networks over the years, and I continue to write when not in production.

If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that history is made up of troublemakers and real estate.
