Biography

A multi-award-winning writer and producer for some of television's most acclaimed comedies, Steven Levitan emerged from the writer's rooms of "The Wonder Years" (ABC, 1988-1993), "Wings" (NBC, 1990-97) and "The Larry Sanders Show" (HBO, 1992-98) to become one of television's more acclaimed show creators. Levitan quickly graduated to a producer role and was instrumental to the success of the "Cheers" spin-off, "Frasier" (NBC, 1993-2004), which earned him an Emmy Award and distinguished him as one of the rising stars of small screen comedy. From there he formed his own production company, Steve Levitan Productions, and created shows as wildly divergent as "Just Shoot Me" (NBC, 1996-2003), "Stark Raving Mad" (NBC, 1999-2000), "Greg the Bunny" (Fox, 2001-02) and "Stacked" (Fox, 2004-06) starring Pamela Anderson. Levitan found even greater success in partnership with Chris Lloyd with whom he created the short-lived "Back to You" (Fox, 2007-08) and the multi-Emmy Award winning critical darling, "Modern Family" (ABC, 2009- ). By deftly blending hilarity with heart, Levitan's brand of comedy was rooted in the joys and absurdities of everyday life, with a particular focus on offbeat variants on the nuclear family. His work was richly rewarded with awards and critical acclaim, as well as by TV viewers, as several of his shows were seen as modern classics and Levitan himself was considered one of the medium's most successful producers.
