Adam Brooks Reed is an American television writer, director, producer and voice actor. He is the creator, executive producer and writer of the adult animated comedy series Archer. Reed also provides the voice of Ray Gillette on Archer.

Background[edit | edit source]

Reed started out in the early nineties as a production assistant for the Cartoon Network. There he did odd jobs until he and frequent collaborator Matt Thompson created a show called High Noon Toons in 1994.

In 1995, the pair founded the animation production house 70/30 Productions where together they created, voice acted, wrote, directed and produced the animated shows Sealab 2021 (2000) and Frisky Dingo (2006). In January 2009, 70/30 Productions closed its doors.

In 2008,[1] Reed and Thomson co-founded another Atlanta-based animation production company called Floyd County Productions, which is the current production house for Archer.
