Bob Kushell

Bob Kushell is an American television writer and producer. He has written for network television comedies including The Muppets, The Simpsons, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Malcolm in the Middle, Grounded For Life, American Dad!, Samantha Who?, Suburgatory and Anger Management.[1] He has been nominated for two primetime Emmy Awards[2] and won a Golden Globe.[3]

Kushell is also the creator and writer of Way to Go, a comedy series for the UK's BBC Three about three men who start an assisted suicide business. First commissioned by the BBC in November 2012,[4] the show drew criticism before it aired from British politician Mark Pritchard, who argued the BBC was regarding assisted suicide as "a matter of fun".[5]

In December 2008 he hosted his own online talk show, co-created with his brother-in-law Russell Arch, Anytime with Bob Kushell, on Crackle.[6] The show was a fully featured talk show in five minutes, including a one-joke monologue, a comedy bit and an interview with a celebrity guest. The show ran for two seasons.

In 2015, Kushell joined Bill Prady, (Co-creator of The Big Bang Theory) to co-create The Muppets. The show was picked up for a primetime series order for the 2015-16 season by ABC Television, with Kushell serving as show runner.[7][8]
