About David Mirkin
  • David Mirkin (born September 18, 1955) is an American feature film and television director, writer and producer.
  • Mirkin grew up in Philadelphia and intended to become an electrical engineer, but abandoned this career path in favor of studying film at Loyola Marymount University.
  • After graduating, he became a stand-up comedian, and then moved into television writing.
  • He wrote for the sitcoms Three's Company, It's Garry Shandling's Show and The Larry Sanders Show and served as showrunner on the series Newhart.
  • After an unsuccessful attempt to remake the British series The Young Ones, Mirkin created Get a Life in 1990.
  • The series starred comedian Chris Elliott and ran for two seasons, despite a lack of support from many Fox network executives, who disliked the show's dark and surreal humor.
  • He moved on to create the sketch show The Edge starring his then-partner, actress Julie Brown. Mirkin left The Edge during its run and became the executive producer and showrunner of The Simpsons for its fifth and sixth seasons.
  • Mirkin has been cited as introducing a more surreal element to the show's humor, as shown by his first writing credit for the show, "Deep Space Homer", which sees Homer Simpson go to space as part of a NASA program to restore interest in space exploration.
  • He won four Primetime Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award for his work on The Simpsons.
  • Mirkin stood down as showrunner after season six, but produced several subsequent episodes, co-wrote The Simpsons Movie (2007) and in 2013 remains on the show as a consultant.
  • Mirkin has also moved into feature film direction: he directed the films Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997) and Heartbreakers (2001).
