A former stand-up, Hobert got his start writing on Bill Lawrence’s Golden Globe-winning comedy Spin City. Finding his voice on the writing side, he went on to spend years working as an Executive Producer on Scrubs, for which he received two Emmy nominations, Community and ’Til Death.
Last season, Hobert developed comedy Jill At Her Worst for Fox and Warner Bros TV.
