Biography

TV actor, director, producer and comedy writer Fred Goss understood people's flaws and made a career for himself of chipping away the slick veneer from media portrayals of American life, replacing them with off-the-cuff representations and homespun truths about the ways most of us muddle through. Not surprisingly, Goss began his career in improvisational theater, sharpening his sense of the truth in the human moment. Luckily, he found fans in the industry with a respect for his fresh take on American complexity, enabling him to develop a series of formulae that more accurately translated the authenticity and spontaneity of American life to the small screen.

Writer, director, producer, editor and actor on "Sons & Daughters" (ABC 2006).

2004

First reoccurring television role on "Significant Others" (Bravo 2004).

Bonus Trivia

.

Describing his strategy for improvisational television, Goss explains "The story is very well described. In each scene, the actor’s intentions and the objectives and the goals they need to hit are very well explained. We have to follow it rigidly because we’re improvising. Otherwise, it’s just a free-for-all and then you just don’t know what you’re gonna end up with.http://blogcritics.org/interview-creator-star-of-sons-daughters/
