Writer/producer Greg Garcia found success in the early 2000s and beyond with a string of popular TV sitcoms that mined the personality quirks of society's more marginalized figures, including "Yes, Dear" (CBS 2000-06), "My Name is Earl" (NBC 2005-09) and "Raising Hope" (Fox 2010-14). Garcia's career began in regional radio, but he had worked on television scripts since his college days. After moving to Los Angeles in the early '90s, he labored as a writer on "Family Matters" (ABC 1989-98) and consulting producer on "Family Guy" (Fox 1999-2003, 2005- ) while shepherding several short-lived series. Garcia finally struck pay dirt with "Yes, Dear," a conventional sitcom anchored by the clash between its central characters, a wealthy Los Angeles couple and their working-class relations. Garcia would continue to explore the oddities of the upper and lower classes in the more successful "My Name is Earl" and "Raising Hope," though to his credit, neither program poked fun at its eccentric characters. Instead, Garcia's series were marked by a genuine affection for their small-time criminals, supermarket managers and pool cleaners, who were celebrated for their tenacity and commitment to their sprawling families. The slew of awards and nominations received by Garcia's programs during their network runs, including an Emmy for Outstanding Writer for "Earl," cemented his status as one of television's most democratic-minded and successful creators.
