David C. Barry
“David Christopher Barry is a very talented, intelligent, hawk-eyed (nothing slips by) creator of characters, then is the custodian of their futures.”
— Michael Lindsay-Hogg, Director
David C Barry is an award-winning writer and producer. He graduated from Rutgers College before attending graduate school at USC’s School of Film and Television. David has written for Academy and Emmy Award winner Ellen Burstyn as well as with BAFTA winner and Tony/Emmy award nominee Michael Lindsay-Hogg, known for being “The Father of the Music Video” for his pioneering work with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
Aside from writing and producing the award-winning viral comedy “TINSEL’S TOWN, (which he also co-directed with Lindsay-Hogg), David is the writer and producer of that show’s sequel, THE LULLABY LEAGUE a TV pilot set for direction by Michael after a successful stage reading at the Strasberg Theater in Los Angeles.
In addition to writing filmed content, David is also a producer of live events and is one of Hollywood’s most outspoken voices against ageism, especially as it relates to women (Grandma Grace as played by Kiva Lawrence-Hoy is one of his favorite characters to date). David feels a responsibility as a writer to populate his stories with women of all ages and all points of view.
Most recently, David wrote and produced a live panel discussion, AGEISM IN HOLLYWOOD, at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, which featured Emmy winner Kathy Griffin, Academy Award nominee Lynn Whitfield, Academy and Emmy Award nominee Lesley Ann Warren, Academy Award nominee JoBeth Williams and best-selling author/activist Ashton Applewhite; it was moderated by Emmy winner Sharon Lawrence. Both David and the event received national press from, among others, THE INSIDER, WOMEN IN FILM, ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD, VANITY FAIR and PBS’s NEXT AVENUE.
