OUT LOUD: If We’re Using A Surrogate, How Come I’m The One With Morning Sickness?
Pennette’s career began on the sitcom “Kate & Allie” from where he moved on to other projects including “Dave’s World” and Dear John. He went on to create and write for many of his own series: “Caroline in the City”, “Union Square”, “Conrad Bloom” and “All About the Andersons”. Most notably, though, were the short-lived medical drama “Inconceivable” co-created with Oliver Goldstick, inspired by both of their surrogate pregnancy experiences, midseason sitcom “Crumbs”. His other writing and producing work from 2003 onwards includes serving as executive producer and co-executive producer on the television series “I’m with Her” and the sitcom “What I Like About You”, for both of which he also wrote a number of episodes. He was a member of the writing panel and an executive producer/co-showrunner on the dramedy series “Ugly Betty”, initially having been a co-executive producer. In August 2012, Pannette became showrunner of “Animal Practice”.
