Julie Tsutsui is a television producer specializing in family comedies. She first cut her teeth on adult comedies, beginning in 1993 with the single-season series "Home Free", which starred Matthew Perry, the year prior to his landing his dream gig on "Friends". In '95, Tsutsui produced the final episodes of comedy duo Marilyn Kentz and Caryl Kristensen's NBC comedy experiment "The Mommies", and then in '97 she served briefly on the short-lived comedy "Hiller and Diller", costarring comedians Richard Lewis and Kevin Nealon in the title roles. In 2001, she joined the early stages of the Damon Wayans sitcom "My Wife and Kids"--which Wayans co-created and starred in--giving her her first opportunity to work extensively with child actors. An associate-producing gig on the first episode of Disney's monster tween hit "Hannah Montana" in '06 led to a succession of jobs with Disney Channel family comedies, which subsequently became her bread and butter: in '06, she began serving as co-producer on the fantasy comedy "That's So Raven", followed in '07 by several episodes of "Cory in the House". That same year, she launched her most successful gig to date, as a co-producer on the Disney Channel's "Wizards of Waverly Place", a New York City-based fantasy comedy that features a family of young wizards-in-training.
