Cindy Chupack has won three Golden Globes and two Emmys for her work as a writer/producer of ABC’s Modern Family and HBO’s Sex and the City. Several episodes she penned -- Little Bo Bleep (Modern Family) and Evolution, Attack of the 5'10" Woman, Just Say Yes, Plus One is the Loneliest Number, I Love a Charade, and Splat! (Sex and the City) -- were individually nominated for Writer's Guild and Emmy awards.
Other TV credits include Everybody Loves Raymond, Coach, and the hour-long romantic comedy anthology series Cindy created for NBC, Love Bites (all eight episodes of which can now be viewed on Amazon).
Cindy grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma and received a journalism degree from Northwestern University, then moved to New York City to work in advertising right out of college. She sold her first humorous essay to a women’s magazine in 1990, and the piece was spotted by a TV producer who encouraged her to pursue comedy writing, which she’s been doing ever since.
She has written humorous essays about dating and relationships for O, The Oprah Magazine (where she had her own column called “Live Your Best Love Life”), Glamour (where she had a column called “Dating Dictionary”), Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, People, Self, Real Simple, Entertainment Weekly, Slate and the New York Times. Her new book, a comic memoir about marriage called “The Longest Date: Life as a Wife” was released by Viking in January 2014.
