The Hollywood TV community is struggling to come to grips with the sudden death of veteran comedy writer-producer Alan Kirschenbaum. Few knew him better than Greg Garcia. The two co-created/executive produced the CBS comedy series Yes, Dear and pilot Fugly, and Garcia also brought in Kirschenbaum to work on his series My Name Is Earl and Raising Hope. But above all, the two were close friends. Here is what Garcia shared with us about his late friend (the images are from the set of Yes, Dear, featuring Kirschenbaum and Garcia alongside series star Mike O’Malley:
This was who Alan was. Always making me laugh harder than anyone else could. I hope somewhere Alan is telling a joke and God is doing a spit take but for those of us he left behind, we’re devastated.
