David S. Simon
Writer/Producer/Director/Playwright/Dad

David began his writing career with exclusive contracts at Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios and Columbia Television. He has been a writer/producer on the staffs of some of TV’s most popular sitcoms including Mad About You, The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, Full House, Sister, Sister and My Two Dads. He co-created The Wayans Brothers. He just wrote and directed his first short comedy films for his New York based company The Wit Protection Program, You can see That’s News To Me starring refugees from the worlds of Woody Allen, Stephen Sondheim, The Onion Newscast, Spamalot and Newsies on the site Funny or Die and his latest comedy short can be seen at Danteandbeatricfilm.com and at film festivals all over the world.

You can read David's VERY special and totally unique book of magical realism for the grown up woman by searching "My Own Personal Mermaid" on Amazon.com.

David is currently working on his first play, "Grave Doubts" with director Peter Flynn. He has two features in development with DreamWorks and Todd Phillips/Warner Brothers and has recently re-teamed with his friend Paul Reiser and the Carson Company to create a Larry Sanders behind the scenes sitcom that takes aim at the Tonight Show in 1970 LA. Good idea right?

He recently wrote a pilot for Carrie Preston (Emmy award winner for The Good Wife) and his many feature scripts and pilots in all genres are being read thanks to his manager and producing partner, the legendary Alan Gasmer former Senior VP of WM.

He is the father of Max and Jake and calls himself “dadicated.”

The last thing he wrote are the words: the last thing he wrote.
