Cindy Chupack

Cindy Chupack, who grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has won two Emmys and three Golden Globes as a TV writer/producer whose credits include “Divorce,” “Better Things,” “Modern Family,” “Sex and the City,” “Everybody Loves Raymond,” and most recently the darkly comic Showtime hour “I’m Dying Up Here” about standup comics in Los Angeles in the 70s.

Several episodes she’s penned – Little Bo Bleep (“Modern Family”) and Evolution, Attack of the 5’10” Woman, Just Say Yes, Plus One is the Loneliest Number, I Love a Charade, and Splat! (“Sex and the City”) – were individually nominated for Writer’s Guild and Emmy awards.

She is the author of two comic memoirs: the New York Times bestseller The Between Boyfriends Book: A Collection of Cautiously Hopeful Essays, and The Longest Date: Life as a Wife. She has had two essays published in the celebrated New York Times Modern Love column, has guested on NPR’s “Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!” and has had her own column in two publications: Glamour and O, The Oprah Magazine.

Her first screenplay (the adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel, How to Be Good, with the late, great Laura Ziskin producing for Miramax) made the Black List for Hottest Unproduced Screenplays of 2008. And Cindy is hoping to increase the number of female directors in Hollywood by directing her first feature this spring for Netflix, OTHERHOOD (a comedy about mothers and their adult sons).

She lives in Marina del Rey, California, with her husband, their 6-year-old daughter, and a very old St. Bernard. For more information visit www.cindychupack.com
