The K/O kids

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci bang out blockbuster scripts

It's right there in the company name: K/O. As in knockout boxoffice. The screenwriter-producer team of Alex Kurtzman (left) and Roberto Orci got its start in the television world of "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Alias" before typing out $1.4 billion in worldwide revenue with a quartet of feature scripts that included "Mission: Impossible III" and "Transformers." With its new TV series "Fringe" running on Fox, K/O will follow with its first feature as producer, "Eagle Eye," opening Friday. The pair's next scripts are two of summer 2009's biggest spectacles, the "Transformers" sequel and a little film called "Star Trek." Oh, and they're each 35 years old. Live long and prosper, indeed.
