Jorge Marchant Lazcano is a Chilean writer, playwright, screenwriter, novelist and journalist. He was born in Santiago, (Chile) on March 9, 1950.
He is the son of Jorge Marchant Montalva and Maria Ester Lazcano Cuevas. He had a religious, conservative and very formal education of which Jorge partially untied, when he began to study journalism at the Universidad de Chile in 1969.
Being a television series writer was not widely admired or highly regarded during those years and Jorge Marchant was strongly criticized for working in this field. In spite of this, his work opened the door for other writers willing to start in the budding industry of television. His most relevant creation during that stage was Volver a empezar (1990). During the nineties Jorge Marchant wrote many television series that are considered classics in the genre. He also built the foundations for a television playwright of wide repercussions in Chile.
