Tim Stack, who has more than 35 years of experience in the entertainment industry, began his career as an actor. He joined the Groundlings in 1980, working with such notables as Paul “Pee Wee Herman” Reubens and the late Phil Hartman. Small movie roles and TV guest shots led to him to getting his first series, ABC’s Reggie, in 1983; NBC’s Our Time in 1985; and Fox’s Parker Lewis Can’t Lose in 1989. During this time, he also began writing. With two TV movies and some sitcom episodes to his credit, he got his first staff job in 1993 on the ABC series On Our Own. The following year, he was able to combine his two talents, acting and writing, by co-creating and starring in the E! Entertainment talk-show spoof Nightstand With Dick Dietrick. In 2000, he partnered with FX and Howard Stern for the Baywatch spoof Son of the Beach. Since then he has been a writer and producer on such shows as NBC’s My Name Is Earl, Fox’s Raising Hope, CBS’ The Millers and, most recently, Disney XD’s Kirby Buckets.
As a producer, he currently has a mini-series in development at HBO based on The Moulin Rouge, a 1950s Las Vegas hotel.
