Gayle Abrams is an Emmy-nominated television writer and producer whose credits include Frasier, Spin City, Gilmore Girls, 90210, 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, Kyle XY, Huge, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and many others. She has sold and produced numerous pilots for ABC, NBCUniversal, Fox, CW, Freeform and Nick At Nite.
Gayle grew up in the 1970’s in Encino, California, a town made famous -- or perhaps infamous -- by Frank Zappa with his song Valley Girl. Gayle did in fact work at the Sherman Oaks Galleria, know the Ondrya named in the song and admits to uttering these sentences as a teen: “like oh my god,” “like totally fer sure” and “like I’m totally freaking out!” But forgive her. We don’t get to choose where we are raised. After attending Birmingham High School in the San Fernando Valley, Gayle went to Kenyon College in Ohio where she majored in English and hoped to follow in the footsteps of its many famous writer and poet alums.
Next, Gayle moved to New York where she worked at Bantam Books. Although she had the opportunity to meet a lot of actual, published writers there, she wasn’t doing much writing herself. And she was also pretty broke, as you don’t make a lot of money working in the publishing business. So she quit her job and moved back to Los Angeles and started writing for television.
Now, in addition to writing and producing television, Gayle is publishing essays and working on her first novel.
