His first job in Hollywood was writing and producing episodes of “Blind Date” and “5thWheel.” Two years later, he sold “Assisted Reality,” a scripted comedy pilot to Columbia Tri-Star TV. The pilot was a comedic look at the behind the scenes of the reality dating world. In 2004, Adam received his first showrunning position for NBC on a new show called “The Biggest Loser.” He was one of the original creative voices in the development and execution of what has turned into a worldwide phenomenon.
