Brian Scully (born August 10, 1953[1] in West Springfield, Massachusetts)[2] is an American television writer and producer.

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.[2] He has written episodes for The Simpsons (such as "Lost Our Lisa")[3] and Complete Savages. He has produced The Drew Carey Show[4] and The Pitts. He is the older brother of long-time The Simpsons writer and showrunner Mike Scully,[5] and has a second brother called Neil.[4] He currently works on Family Guy as a writer and consulting producer.
