Manny Coto is an Americanmarker writer, director and producer of films and television programs. He was the executive producer and showrunner of Star Trek: Enterprise in its final season, and executive producer of three seasons of 24.

Career

Coto graduated from the American Film Institute and has had much experience in sci-fi and fantasy genre. He wrote and directed an episode of Tales from the Crypt and also wrote an episode for and produced The Outer Limits when it was revived on Showtime in 1995. He was given the chance to create and write a series for Showtime after The Outer Limits was cancelled. The resulting series was Odyssey 5 and starred Peter Weller, the original RoboCop (Coto would later cast Weller in roles on both Enterprise and 24).

Coto joined the writing crew of Enterprise in 2003, when the show was in its third season; his episodes include "Similitude", "Chosen Realm" and "Azati Prime". He became a co-executive producer later that season. In the fourth season he became executive producer of the show, alongside series creators Rick Berman and Brannon Braga.

According to his bio on StarTrek.com, he has been a fan of Star Trek all his life and once wrote a Star Trek comic book. Coto led an effort to further tie in the prequel series with the fictional continuity of the original Star Trek. This concept and much of the restructuring of the show's format was extremely well-received by the fanbase, and most fans reported a marked improvement in the quality of the series in its last season, and credited the effort to an increase in enthusiasm among fans for the struggling show. Other fans described the creative shift as "too little, too late," as previous running story arcs were severely reduced or dropped in favor of the new direction. As is the case with many debates in the Star Trek fan community, this one shows no sign of resolving itself. In any case, ratings for the show continued to decline during Coto's tenure, although few attribute this to Coto, as the ratings had been in a state of general decline since the series' successful debut in 2001.

After that he became co-executive producer on the fifth, sixth and seventh seasons of 24.

Coto has also directed a number of films including Cover-Up starring Dolph Lundgren, Dr. Giggles and Star Kid.
