Screenwriter, producer and TV series creator Terry Turner has been joined at the creative hip to his wife Bonnie Turner since the mid-1970s, and the two have worked extensively in film and television. Starting out as comedy writers with revue credits in Atlanta, Georgia, Turner switched to news, writing and producing with his wife for Turner Broadcasting. From there former colleague and "Saturday Night Live" player Jan Hooks introduced the Turners to Lorne Michaels, and they landed writing jobs on the popular NBC sketch comedy series. As "SNL" writers from 1986-1992, the Turners wrote memorable skits for Dana Carvey's wacky "Church Lady" and Mike Myers' medieval "Lothar of the Hill People" as well as cable access favorite sons Wayne and Garth of "Wayne's World" that returned the faltering series to the realm of pop culture cool.
