Big thanks to all these writers for making our favorite shows what they are.

There are so many incredible talents whose writing is worth writing about, and whittling them down to a few involved some difficult decisions. Read on as we give you some of our favorites.

Tina Fey


You don’t land the spot of “First Female Writer” on ‘SNL’ if you are terrible at your job. She has shown an incredible talent as a wordsmith — just read ‘Bossypants’ if you don’t think so. She went on to write for a hugely successful ’30 Rock,’ which she starred in as a television writer (write what you know), and her newest endeavor, Netflix original ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,’ has not disappointed us to date.

Larry David

People still talk about, and quote, ‘Seinfeld,’ Since then, he has also had popularity with ‘Curb your Enthusiasm,’ which was very successful in its day. He is easily the most recognizable face of television writers.

Aaron Sorkin


Agree with his politics or not, you have to admit that he’s had some great successes, with seemingly endless back-to-back hits. This list would be incomplete without him, and we don’t know about you but we’re really looking forward to seeing what he comes out with next to trump ‘Newsroom.’
