Dan Bucatinsky wrote, produced, and starred in indie romantic comedy All Over the Guy (Lionsgate). In 2003, he and partner Lisa Kudrow founded Is Or Isn't Entertainment, which produced the cult HBO comedy The Comeback co-starring Bucatinsky as publicist, Billy Stanton. Their acclaimed docu-series Who Do You Think You Are? completed three seasons on NBC, earning an Emmy nomination in 2012, then transitioned to TLC where it received an additional Emmy nomination and is wrapping up its fifth season. The pair have also garnered critical and audience attention for the groundbreaking, web-to-TV series Web Therapy on Showtime, in which Bucatinsky also stars. Web Therapy wrapped its fourth season in January, with an illustrious guest cast including Gwyneth Paltrow, Billy Crystal, Allison Janney and Christina Applegate.

Is Or Isn't Entertainment joined with film producer, Marc Platt, to produce the 2010 independent feature The Other Woman, starring Natalie Portman and Kudrow, and directed by Don Roos.

As a writer/producer Bucatinsky co-executive produced the NBC dramedy Lipstick Jungle, and wrote for Grey's Anatomy as a consulting producer.

As an actor, Dan recurred on the Shonda Rhimes ABC series, Scandal, where he won a 2014 Primetime Emmy Award for his portrayal of James Novak. He was a series regular on NBC's Marry Me, opposite Casey Wilson, Ken Marino and Tim Meadows, and recently guest starred in the season finale of NBC's Superstore.

Television audiences may also remember him from guest roles on Grey’s Anatomy, Curb Your Enthusiasm, In Plain Sight and Weeds. Film roles include I Love Your Work, Under the Tuscan Sun, and The Opposite of Sex.
