Scully initially worked as a TV salesman before eventually getting a job writing on Out of This World. After the show was canceled, Scully was unemployed for over a year but a residual payment of $20,000 for Out of This World reruns helped pay his health insurance costs after his wife gave birth to their premature child. He has written episodes for The Simpsons (such as "Lost Our Lisa") and Complete Savages. He has produced The Drew Carey Show and The Pitts. He is the older brother of long-time The Simpsons writer and showrunner Mike Scully, and has a second brother called Neil. He currently works on Family Guy as a writer and co-executive producer.
