Biography

Don Reo was a Hollywood producer of hit television shows, best known for his involvement in "Blossom" (NBC 1993-95), the Emmy Award-winning series "Two and a Half Men" (CBS 2003-), and the legendary comedy series "M*A*S*H" (CBS 1972-1983). Reo started his television career first as a writer for ABC's variety show "Jimmy Durante Presents the Lennon Sisters" (1969-1970). The show was not a hit and was cancelled after one season, so Reo found more steady work by writing for the comedy sketch show "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" (NBC 1968-1973). In the fall of 1972, he left "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" to pursue writing for sitcoms like "Sanford and Son" (NBC 1972-77), "All in the Family" (CBS 1971-79), and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (CBS 1970-77).
