Biography

Wil Calhoun is a writer/producer who has made sitcoms since the mid-1990s. Following a brief foray into acting that included a cameo as Jesse James on the hit adventure series "MacGyver" in 1990, Calhoun inked his way onto the Lea Thompson-starring sitcom, "Caroline in the City", as an executive story editor and writer in 1996. That same year he also began writing and editing for the NBC comedy behemoth "Friends" and quickly worked his way into producing, and eventually executive-producing, through 2001. In 1999, he and his fellow "Friends" producers received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. Fresh from that triumphant run, Calhoun teamed up with writing partner Dan Schneider in 2002 to create the modestly successful WB comedy "What I Like About You", on which Amanda Bynes's Holly decides--after her father moves to Japan for work--to live with her older sister, Valerie ("Beverly Hills, 90210" veteran Jennie Garth). The series, which explored the evolution of the sisters' relationship as the younger Holly grew into adulthood, ran four seasons, and Calhoun scripted 80 of the 86 total episodes, executive-producing another 32. Toward the end of the 2000s, his projects included a brief writing stint on the short-lived Molly Shannon and Selma Blair mother-daughter comedy, "Kath & Kim", followed by the Jay Mohr-starring, divorced-dad-with-kids sitcom, "Gary Unmarried", for which he produced and briefly wrote.
