Tom Kapinos (born July 12, 1969) is an American television writer and screenwriter best known for his creation of the television series Californication, but more recently he created the series Lucifer.
Kapinos moved from New York to California in the mid-1990s, working in Los Angeles for Creative Artists Agency as a script reader, until Fox 2000 purchased his first screenplay The Virgin Mary in 1999 and attached actress Jennifer Aniston to the title role. The film was never made, but interest in the screenplay reached Dawson's Creek executive producer Paul Stupin, who offered Kapinos a job later that same year.
After beginning his career in television in 1999 as a writer and eventually executive producer on drama series Dawson's Creek, Kapinos moved on to his own series, Californication, a dramedy for which he served as both executive producer and chief writer.
