Cherry Chevapravatdumrong (Thai: เชอร์รี่ ชีวประวัติดำรงค์; rtgsChoe-ri Chiwaprawatdamrong;/ˌvəprɑːvɪtˈdʌmrɒŋ/; also known as Cherry Cheva, born 1977) is an American author, and co-executive producer of Family Guy and The Orville.

Personal life[edit]

Chevapravatdumrong, a Thai American, was born in Columbus, Ohio and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, graduating from Huron High School in 1995. She majored in psychology at Yale University,[1] where she wrote for the Yale Record, Yale's humor magazine.[2] She later earned a Juris Doctor degree from New York University Law School, where she wrote for the comedic Law Revue.[3] During law school, she spent her summers working at law firms and her winter breaks waiting tables at her parents' restaurant.[4] She then moved to Los Angeles to pursue writing. Before working on Family Guy, she was a writer's assistant on Listen Up![1]

Family Guy[edit]

She is now the only female writer on Family Guy (a fact mentioned in the episode Roasted Guy), and also a co-executive producer. She released two young adult novels, She's So Money and DupliKate under the name Cherry Cheva.[5]

Her last name was used in its entirety in the episode "And I'm Joyce Kinney" as the real last name of Joyce Kinney.

In the episode "Jesus, Mary and Joseph!", Peter breaks the fourth wall by rearranging the letters of her name in the opening credits to say "Chemotherapy vanguard vCr" (with one 'r' left over, which he throws at Lois when she points this out.)
