Michael George Moye (born August 11, 1954) is an American photographer and a former television writer and producer.[1] In his television career he has written for shows such as The Jeffersons, Diff'rent Strokes, Good Times, and 227, and produced It's Your Move and The Jeffersons. His best-known work is likely the 1987 series Married... with Children, created with Ron Leavitt for the fledgling Fox network.

Early career[edit]

Moye began his career in 1977 with a staff writing position on Good Times. Between 1979 and 1984, he wrote for The Jeffersons, and in 1982 he co-developed Silver Spoons, which ran for five seasons. He also co-developed both It's Your Move and 227, the latter under an assumed name.[1]

Married... with Children[edit]

Married... with Children, created by Moye and Leavitt in 1987 for the Fox network, was called an "anti-family" series,[2] but immediately became a hit, running for 11 seasons and being credited with keeping the fledgling Fox network "in the black for five or six years."[3] Moye was a producer and a writer on the show for most of its run, and had a hand in writing a series-leading 25 episodes[4] as well as having a few cameo appearances on screen.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Moye retired from television in 1995 and is now a photographer and an avid coral reef aquarium hobbyist.[1][6] He has two children from two marriages.[1]
