Biography

A veteran television producer and scriptwriter, Richard Gurman has contributed to such iconic television programs as "Laverne & Shirley", "Happy Days", and "Married with Children". Gurman got his start in the 1980s writing an episode of the Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams vehicle, as well as a few scripts for the very short-lived "Brady Bunch" spinoff, "The Brady Brides". He then joined the hit period sitcom "Happy Days" in 1982, though by then the show's popularity had begun to wane. As story editor and writer for the program, he worked on "Happy Days" from 1982 until 1984. One of his scripts dealt with Fonzie's attempt at desegregating a lunch counter in the South, a departure from the show's usually apolitical themes. Gurman's TV credits didn't stop there. He served as producer and writer for the popular Gary Coleman sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes", then became an integral part of the production team during the entire 11-season run of the politically incorrect domestic sitcom "Married with Children". He also has been a writer and producer on the more moderately successful sitcoms "I'm in the Band" and "Still Standing".
