Glaser was born in Norfolk, Virginia. While attending the University of Southern California, Glaser was employed by 20th Century Fox Television on such shows as M*A*S*H, Trapper John, M.D., & Dynasty.
Production career and Tab Hunter
Glaser ultimately became director of acquisitions of feature films at 20th Century Fox. It was while in this position he met Tab Hunter. The two formed Fox Run Productions and produced the film Lust in the Dust starring Hunter, Divine, & Lainie Kazan. Released in 1985, the film was a hit and landed Glaser a production deal back at Fox on his next film Sorority Confidential, written by Patricia Resnick, writer of the film 9 to 5.
Glaser talked Hunter into writing his autobiography Tab Hunter Confidential which became a New York Times Best Seller. Glaser turned the book into a critically acclaimed documentary in 2015, also entitled Tab Hunter Confidential.
Between his feature film work, Glaser has worked as a production executive for several major studios.
