Daily currently serves as executive producer/showrunner on the studio’s comedy series Odd Couple, starring Matthew Perry, which returns for a second season on April 7. He also is the co-creator, exec producer and showrunner of CBS TV Studios’ CBS comedy pilot Superior Donuts starring Jermaine Fowler, Brian d’Arcy James and Maz Jobrani.

Frasier and Desperate Housewives alum Daily is repped by WME.
