In addition to extensive writing duties she was also a producer on "Cybill," an award-winning show that lasted four seasons. Subsequently she was writer/producer on the sitcoms "That '70s Show," "That '80s Show," and the self-referential Lisa Kudrow program "The Comeback" in 2005. The comedic drama "Nurse Jackie" debuted in 2009 and was a critical and commercial hit.
