David Chambers


Married couple David Chambers and Julie Chambers have worked extensively in primetime and cable television for more than 30 years and are lecturers at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

Between them they have sold half-hour comedy pilots to ABC, CBS, Fox, Showtime and TV Land, and have run primetime series. They have written books, screenplays and documentaries, and have worked on the writing staffs of more than a dozen shows, including the Emmy-winning The Wonder Years, Frank’s Place and The Simpsons, for which they earned a WGA Award nomination. They also have Golden Globe and Emmy nominations and have won a Humanitas Prize. Along the way they have written for many comic luminaries, from Mel Brooks to Tom Hanks. They helped launch and continue to teach for the Syracuse University in Los Angeles program. Recently they contributed two chapters to author Linda Venis’ Inside the Room: Writing Television with the Pros at UCLA Extension Writers’ Program.

Currently, the Chambers are writing their own book about creating the original comedy pilot and continue to write for and pitch ideas to the industry.

Their greatest collective achievement, however, is their creation of two highly-rated children.
