Abstract:

Everybody Loves Raymond reigned as America's best-loved television show for nine years. Here, its creator and executive producer takes us onstage and inside the writer's room. Rosenthal's meteoric ascent was preceded by a variety of odd jobs, including writing for a slew of forgettable shows. But when he met comedian Ray Romano, they discovered a shared lifetime of family dysfunction--and endless material for a sitcom. Not only a chronicle of one man's rise to the peak of his profession, Rosenthal's book is also a look at the making of a hit series: how shows are written and character developed, how comedy is refined, how network executives are outsmarted, and most important, how egos are massaged. This book is an inspiration to anyone involved in the creative process and a good read for the show's devoted fans.--From publisher description.
