My ex-TV writing partner, John Stark and I were staff writers on the ABC sitcom "Ellen" for 4 seasons. In 1996, we wrote what was called "The Puppy Episode," aka Ellen's ground-breaking coming-out episode. In 1997, along with Ellen herself, Dava Savel and Mark Driscoll, we won the writing Emmy for that show. This video is us at the ceremony. A very exciting night, as you can imagine.
