TV's Top 50 Showrunners 2010
The latest comedy from the Emmy-winning "My Name Is Earl" showrunner was nearly called "Keep Hope Alive." But fears of upsetting Jesse Jackson prompted a name change, just one of the challenges on a series with a precocious baby as its focal point. "What we think is an easy scene can turn into a couple hours while the baby decides if it's in a good mood or not," Garcia said at TCA. "Hope" will have a similar feel to the deadpan homespun delivery of "Earl." "I like to try and do a little movie every week, so we'll try and accomplish that."
Big Break: Garcia's first writing job was on ABC's "Family Matters."
