Warren Hutcherson is the Showrunner and Executive producer of “Raven’s Home,” now in its third season. A Peabody Award-winner and Emmy®-nominated writer/producer, Hutcherson first worked on the series as a co-executive producer alongside his longtime friend and colleague Eunetta Boone, who he first met when they worked together on the hit series “Living Single.”
Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Hutcherson began his career in entertainment in 1985, writing jokes for a friend who was performing at Baltimore’s Charm City Comedy Club. He eventually started performing his own material as well as writing for others in the same club.
His standup career led him to relocate to New York City where he became a regular performer at many of the city’s top comedy clubs, including The Comedy Cellar, The Village Gate and the legendary Catch A Rising Star, where he became the club’s main MC. He went on to headline HBO’s 14th Annual “Young Comedians Special” and performed multiple times on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam.”
While he performed around New York, Hutcherson toured and wrote for “Sesame Street” for one season and “Saturday Night Live” from 1991–1993, for which he received multiple Primetime Emmy nominations. He went on to write for Robert Townsend’s Fox Television show “Townsend Television,” which led him to relocate to Los Angeles.
His ability to write funny relatable stories that touch on family and everyday life helped him garner numerous writer/producer credits that span popular shows, such as “Dr. Ken,” “Mr. Robinson,” “Everyone Hates Chris,” “Saturday Night Special” and “Living Single.”
Hutcherson has received critical acclaim for his work as a writer and executive producer on popular series “Men of Certain Age” and “The Bernie Mac Show,” for which he won the Peabody Award and received nominations for the Humanitas Prize for both series. “The Bernie Mac Show” also won the Humanitas Prize and received numerous NAACP Image Award and BET Award nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series. He also wrote for and executive produced BET’s “Reed Between the Lines” and “What Would Dylan Do,” “The Parent’hood,” “Moesha” and “Just Jordan.”
Hutcherson currently resides in Los Angeles, with his wife and two children.
