Biography

Some might say television runs in the blood of writer and producer David Kohan. He was born is the son of television writer Buz Kohan, and always felt a need to write for television to continue the family tradition. Kohan attended Wesleyan University, majoring in English and philosophy. After college, he began writing for the talk show "The Dennis Miller Show". In 1991, he first teamed up with his longtime writing partner, Max Mutchnick, and they've been writing together for television ever since. They wrote for "The Dennis Miller Show" until they created their own shows with the sitcoms"Boston Common" and "Good Morning, Miami", but it was in 1998 that they had their biggest hit with the long-running sitcom "Will and Grace", which starred Eric McCormack and Debra Messing in a story about a gay man and his best female friend. The show was often stolen by second bananas Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally, and it lives on in re-runs. In 2010, Kohan and Mutchnick produced and wrote the sitcom "$#*! My Dad Says" starring William Shatner. In addition to an Emmy for his work on "Will and Grace", Kohan has received four GLAAD Media Awards.
