Andrew W. Marlowe created the series Castle. In addition to being the showrunner Marlowe served as Executive Producer and lead writer of the series from season 1 to season 7. He says he created Castle because he felt that interesting characters had disappeared from police procedurals in recent years. "I was missing the fun characters that I saw on TV growing up - like Moonlighting. On those shows, you really got a sense of who the people were and that is what you were following more than the case. I wanted to bring something like that back to television. It felt like there was room for it since the other shows were doing things that were different. They were not focusing on characters."[1]

He and his wife Terri Edda Miller, also a writer and producer on the show, left Castle at the end of the seventh season, handing over to veteran writers Terence Paul Winter and Alexi Hawley. They said farewell on Twitter [2] with a modified version of Alexis's graduation speech at the end of Always, and adding: 'To the Castle fandom: thank you for seven amazing seasons. It's been an honor. We loved every second of it.'

Andrew W. Marlowe served as Executive Producer on every episode of Castle's first seven seasons. He and Terri also had cameo appearances in The Lives of Others, Castle's 100th episode, and Hollander's Woods, the season 7 finale, which they wrote together.
