      Barbara Hall is a writer and producer with over 25 years of experience working in television. She started her career by writing an episode of the sitcom "Family Ties" in 1983, and then began writing several episodes of another successful comedy, "Newhart," that same year, becoming the show's story editor over 11 episodes in 1983 and '84. In 1988, she wrote and produced briefly on the hit detective comedy-romance "Moonlighting," and then in 1991 she became entrenched in the Joshua Brand-John Falsey drama "I'll Fly Away," which starred Sam Waterston, writing eight episodes and earning producer credits on over 20 of them. In 1993 and '94, Hall was a writer and consulting producer on the ground-breaking comedic drama "Northern Exposure," created by David Chase. In 1999, she became one of the main writers and executive producers on the legal drama "Judging Amy," which starred and was co-created by actress Amy Brenneman. The series ran for six seasons, until 2005, and Hall contributed writing to every episode. With that prominent project in hand, in 2003 Hall created her own series, the fantasy-drama "Joan of Arcadia," a modestly successful, two-season series about a teenager, played by Amber Tamblyn, who talks to God and performs duties she's given, but isn't sure whether or not she might be going crazy. Hall wrote and executive-produced on 23 of the show's 45 episodes. Hall is also a successful novelist who has written 10 novels. In 2010, Hall wrote and produced the romantic mini-series "Marry Me."
