Richard Timothy "Tim" Kring (born July 9, 1957) is an American screenwriter and television producer, best known for his creation of the television series Strange World, Crossing Jordan, and Heroes.

Kring is Jewish. He graduated from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts in 1983.

He got his start as a screenwriter writing for the TV show Knight Rider. One of his earlier projects was co-writer for an episode of Misfits of Science, which, like his later project Heroes, featured superpowered humans as a main theme. Another early project was Teen Wolf Too, co-written by Jeph Loeb. The two would later re-team when producing Heroes.

He also co-wrote the book Shift: A Novel (Gates of Orpheus Trilogy) with Dale Peck, published in 2010.

After the cancellation of Heroes, Kring created the TV series Touch, a drama centering on a father (Kiefer Sutherland) who discovers his autistic and mute son can predict events. The series is slated for midseason on Fox.
