Michael Patrick King

Born: September 14, 1954, Scranton, Pennsylvania - USA

Michael Patrick King is an American director, writer, and producer for television shows and films.

In 1975, King moved to New York, did comedy, and wrote plays. He also was a member of a comedy improv group called The Broadway Local which mostly performed at Manhattan Punch Line Theatre. They were considered to be the in-house Improv group there.

He eventually moved to Los Angeles, where he found work writing for the television series “Murphy Brown”, and was nominated for several Emmys.

He has written for another HBO show, “The Comeback”, as well as for broadcast shows “Will & Grace”, “Good Advice”, and “Cybill”.

He may be best known for his work on the HBO series Sex and the City, which was created by Darren Star.

King wrote all the season premieres and finales of “Sex and the City” (except its pilot, written by Star, and the fifth-season finale, which King co-wrote with Cindy Chupack). He directed the show's film adaptation, and its follow-up, “Sex and the City 2”.

He is featured on The Other Network Writers Room, an audio series for aspiring comedy writers.

TV Show

The series initially follows Valerie Cherish (Kudrow), a veteran sitcom actress who has been out of the spotlight for more than a decade, as she attempts in 2005 to return to the industry that made her famous. Valerie lands a role on a new network sitcom, but struggles with the matter of being an aging, non-influential performer in an increasingly-youthful Hollywood, while her every move on and off the set is being documented for a companion reality show. When the cameras catch up with Valerie in 2014, she is cast in an HBO series entitled Seeing Red, which chronicles the career of the sitcom writer/producer who tormented her nine years earlier.
