Working closely with husband and creative partner Terry Turner since the mid-1970s, writer, producer and TV series creator Bonnie Turner has made a name for herself in the industry with extensive film and television comedy credits. The pair began their career as a comedy writing team penning revue shows in Atlanta, Georgia in 1975. They subsequently did award-winning news writing and producing work for Turner Broadcasting, but returned to comedy in the mid-80s, landing writing jobs for the popular sketch comedy series "Saturday Night Live" in 1986 after former colleague and "SNL" cast member Jan Hooks introduced them to producer Lorne Michaels. The Turners' work helped keep the then-failing series afloat from 1986-1993, helping to bring life to such iconic characters as Mike Myers' Wayne Campbell, star of the Aurora cable access program "Wayne's World" and Dana Carvey's hyper-judgmental "Church Lady."
