Jeff Rake grew up on the mean streets of Encino. He then bounced from coast to coast for college and law school. Hanging up a short and mediocre legal career, Rake wrote and produced his Elvis Presley hip hop musical Hound Dog: a hip hOpera, which catapulted him straight into a two-year stint sitting around in his underwear trying to write for TV. He went on to create The $treet, Miss Match, and The Mysteries of Laura. Rake is currently developing for Warner Bros. Television. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and their many, many children.
