Ben joined the writing staff of Supernatural for Season 7 with writing partner Ben Acker. Together they also produce the The Thrilling Adventure and Supernatural Suspense Hour, a live stage show in the style of 1940s radio performed monthly at the Largo theatre in L.A. A number of well known actors appear in the show and there have been a range of famous guest stars including Jim Beaver.
Fandom first found out about Ben and Ben writing for the show when Jim posted and tweeted on 18 May 2011: Picked up some stuff at the Supernatural office & saw Kripke, Sera, Singer, Ben (& 2 new Bens) & the other writers already back working on season 7 scripts. Very happy to see them all. source
Ben is also the creator and host of the Nerdist Writers panels which feature writers from all media about the process and business of being a writer.
