This article is about a/an writer, producer, and director in the Power Rangers franchise.

Judd "Chip" Lynn is an American television writer, producer, and director, best known for his work on the children's action/adventure series Power Rangers.


He spent the first few years as Production Manager and directed second unit scenes for Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, before becoming a director on Power Rangers Turbo. He served as a staff writer during the second season, before gaining greater influence as the story editor/head writer for more than five years beginning midway though Power Rangers: Turbo, and Co-Producer beginning with Power Rangers in Space, Lost Galaxy, Lightspeed Rescue and Time Force, the last season he was involved in before his departure from MMPR Productions.

Lynn chose to base the sixth season of the series in space as opposed to the video game themes of the Super Sentai source material, it took its suits and mecha from Denji Sentai Megaranger. The stabs at a different tone for the Power Rangers franchise led to a greater effort in all American Ranger fight scenes, villains, and content than seen in previous incarnations.

During the 2007-2008 Writer's Guild Strike, it is rumored that he wrote a couple of episodes for Jungle Fury under the pseudonym "Ally Mondera".

Lynn returned to the franchise as an Executive Producer for Power Rangers: RPM after the newly-appointed Eddie Guzelian was relieved from his duties as executive producer by Disney employees during the middle of the season. At Power Morphicon 2010, Lynn told fans he would not be a part of Saban's 2011 season, Power Rangers Samurai, as he was not given the position of head writer of the season. However, in 2014, a casting breakdown revealed that Judd was to return as Executive Producer for Power Rangers Dino Charge, replacing Jonathan Tzachor.[1]

Jackie Marchand has said Lynn had a collaborative, writing room approach where all writers would get together and choose what to do. [2]

His only onscreen appearance was in "Chase into Space" Part 2, when he portrayed Dark Spectre 's messenger.
