Gregory Thomas García (born April 4, 1970), is an American television director, producer and writer. He is the creator/executive producer of several long-running sitcoms, including Yes, Dear,My Name Is Earl (where he made seven cameo appearances), and Raising Hope. He has also worked for the series Family Matters and as a consulting producer on Family Guy. He developed two pilots for CBS for the 2013-14 season, one of which, The Millers, was picked up.
García worked as a board operator for The Tony Kornheiser Show on WTEM radio. He was also an intern for the Don and Mike Show radio program in Fairfax VA. His sister, Shelley, lives with her family in Fairfax and his parents, Tom and Natalie, still reside in Arlington.
García and his wife Kim have three children together and live in the LA area.
García has been incorrectly labeled as a Scientologist, as some of the Earl cast are members of the group, after reports in the Daily Mirror and comments made by actor Alec Baldwin. In Garcia's own words, "I am not currently nor have I ever been a Scientologist. ... I am in fact born and raised Catholic."
His name is mentioned in Entourage when writer's agent Andrew Klein (Gary Cole) tells Ari Gold that he signed García with their agency in the series' season six premiere "Drive".
During the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike, García worked as a cashier and janitor at a Burger King in Burbank, California.
