Bob Fisher, born in 1961, is an American screenwriter whose credits include Wedding Crashers, the 2011 Fox comedy series Traffic Light and We're the Millers. He is also co-writer and co-executive producer for the US adaptation of Sirens.[1]

In 2014, he spoke at an event at Cal State Long Beach's Hall of Science about how he became a screenwriter. He stated that he considered attending law school after college but became a bartender instead, during which he read an article about television writers and how well they were paid. This led him to begin writing his own scripts for practice. His first screenwriting job came in 1995 for The Bonnie Hunt Show.[2]

His latest film, We're the Millers, took 12 years to make and generated more than $270 million at the box office.[3]
