Eric Kripke is an American television writer, director, and producer. He is best known for creating the television series Supernatural.

A 1992 graduate of Sylvania Southview High School, Eric often created home movies with friends to show to other students. After graduating from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts in 1996 as a member of the Gamma Eta Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha, Kripke wrote and directed two 1997 films: Battle of the Sexes and Truly Committed. He later developed and wrote for the The WB's 2003 television series Tarzan, which was cancelled after eight episodes, and followed this by writing the 2005 film Boogeyman.

In 2005, Kripke created the series Supernatural and currently serves as headwriter and executive producer on the series. Supernatural first aired on The WB. It now airs on The CW, which was created by The WB's 2006 merger with UPN.

Kripke won Slamdance Film Festival's Audience Award for Truly Committed, and, in 2008, TelevisionWeek named him one of its "Masters of Horror" currently working in television.
