David Crane born 13 August 1957
David Crane is an American writer and producer, born in Philadelphia. He was one of the creators of the hugely successful TV sitcom Friends in 1994, along with his longtime friend Marta Kauffman. In 1996 he created and executive produced the sitcom Veronica's Closet, which starred Kirstie Alley.
He is primarily known for his comedic writing. Crane lives with his partner, Jeffrey Klarik. Together, they have created a new Friends-like sitcom, The Class.
Disappointingly, unlike several of his gay TV writer/producer contemporaries, Crane failed to introduce any significant gay characters in ten years' of Friends.
