Biography

Fred Barron is a writer and producer who has created both English and American television series, two English and one American. He began his career as a screenwriter, penning the modest 1977 romantic comedy, "Between the Lines," which featured future well-known actors John Heard, Jeff Goldblum, Jill Eikenberry, and Bruno Kirby, among others. Barron began writing for TV in 1984, penning an episode of "Kate & Allie," and two episodes of a short-lived comedy called "Just in Time" in 1988. The 1990s is when Barron's career really took off as a writer and producer. He executive-produced four episodes of the iconic sitcom, "Seinfeld" in 1990, three episodes of the pioneering "The Larry Sanders Show," in 1992, and 28 episodes of the comedy, "Dave's World"--which starred Harry Anderson from "Night Court"--for which he also wrote nine episodes. In 1995, he co-created and went on to write nearly episode of the NBC sitcom, "Caroline in the City," which starred Lea Thompson as a Manhattan cartoonist who penned a strip of the same name. The series ran until 2000, when Barron reached across the pond to forge a partnership with BBC America to create a comedy based on his own life, dubbed simply "My Family." Barron has written all 108 episodes of the series over its successful run through the 2000s, as well as executive-produced 48 of them. During that run, he also managed to create another BBC comedy in 2007, another show about a family called "After You've Gone," which ran for three seasons.
