Creator of the American science-fiction drama television series Colony, Ryan Condol is a screenwriter who is best known for adapting novels and comic books into movies. Having started his career in 2012 with the short film Plurality, Condol was the creator of the TV movie The Sixth Gem. Based on the monthly comic book series created by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, Condol adapted the five-volume comic series into a TV movie in 2013, which featured Pedro Pascal, Michiel Huisman, Elena Satine, and Laura Ramsey in pivotal roles, and was also associated with the movie as an executive producer.

In 2014, the writer made his feature film debut with the American 3D action fantasy adventure Hercules, which, yet again, is an adaptation of the graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars. The movie went on to become a box office success, however, it opened to mixed reviews from the critics and audience alike. It is his work as the showrunner of the science-fiction drama television series Colony that has won him widespread recognition and applause. The successful show has been nominated as the Best Science Fiction Television Series at the Saturn Awards for three years back-to-back - 2016, 2017, and 2018. Having received positive reviews, notable author Stephen King has also praised the television show for its content, calling it "something special: smart, suspenseful, subversive... thought-provoking."

In 2018, Condal wrote the screenplay of the sci-fi action adventure Rampage, starring Dwayne Johnson in the lead. Loosely based on the video game series of the same name, Rampage follows the life of a primatologist who teams up with an albino gorilla, who turned into an enormous creature following a rogue experiment, to stop an invasion by two monsters. His future movies include two extremely ambitious projects titled Highlander and Logan's Run.
