For nearly 10 years no TV comedy was as popular or beloved as Everybody Loves Raymond. In You're Lucky You're Funny, Phil Rosenthal, the creator and executive producer of the show, tells the behind-the-scenes story of the making of a number one smash-hit sitcom. Based on ay Romano's actual life, the show also took much of its material from Phil's equally, and hysterically, dysfunctional family characters and experiences. Besides being one of the funniest books ever written about television, You're Lucky You're Funny is one of the most illuminating. Phil offers an unprecedented look at the making of a hit show, considering everything from casting to writing to production to managing egos to keeping a series fresh after it has comfortably settled in for the long haul.
