Jack Burditt

creator Last Man Standing; writer/executive producer Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Mindy Project, 30 Rock; writer/co-producer Frasier

Born and raised in Cleveland, OH, and later in Burbank, CA, graduated from Burbank High School. Worked too many odd jobs to list, but did longer stints at Six Flags Magic Mountain, Lockheed, the Los Angeles Daily News and the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, before becoming a script reader (Disney, Tri-Star) and later a TV writer.  Credits include “Mad About You,” “Frasier,” “Just Shoot Me,” “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” “30 Rock,” “The Mindy Project,” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”  Also, created “Last Man Standing” and co-created “DAG,” a sitcom about the Secret Service, which I sort of wish I was doing now because its bumbling antics seem ripe for comedy.  Keeps insisting he doesn’t live in New York even though he’s spent seven of the past nine years there.  Winner of four WGA Awards.
