David Chambers

David Chambers is a graduate of DePauw University, majoring in Philosophy, before continuing his education at Indiana University where he received an M. A. in Directing from the Department of Theatre and Drama.

David then moved to Hollywood and pursued a career writing and producing more than a dozen prime-time network television shows, beginning with Bosom Buddies, which launched Tom Hanks’ career, and including the Emmy Award-winning series, The Wonder Years and Frank’s Place. He has also written numerous pilots and screenplays, as well as documentaries for The History Channel. With his wife, Julie, he wrote an episode of The Simpsons that was nominated for a Writers’ Guild Award. The husband-and-wife team then had the pleasure of working with Mel Brooks on an animated series.

They currently have a variety of projects in different stages of development, and also work as script consultants. Several years ago, David and Julie began teaching writing at UCLA for both the graduate and undergraduate programs in Film and Television, and are honored to have helped launch and continue to teach for Syracuse University in Los Angeles.
