The details (from wikipedia)


Mark Brazill (born April 16, 1962) is an American stand-up comic, television creator and executive producer. He is most well known as being the co-creator of the FOX situation comedy That '70s Show which aired for eight seasons, and also co-created the series' indirect spinoff, That '80s Show which failed and was cancelled by Fox after its first season of only 13 half-hour episodes.


Brazill is from Dunkirk, New York. Brazill was a consulting producer and later a producer of NBC's 3rd Rock from the Sun. He is also one of the creators and writers of That '70s Show. He loosely based the setting of his sitcom That '70s Show on his hometown.

Early in his career, he was an uncredited writer for the video game film adaptation Double Dragon, mainly for the comedy.

Conflict with Judd Apatow

In late 2001, Judd Apatow sought to have Topher Grace of That '70s Show appear in an episode of his series Undeclared. This initiated a string of heated emails between the two. Brazill claimed that Apatow had stolen his idea for a comedy about a rock band and used it on The Ben Stiller Show in the early 1990s. The sketch was titled "The Grungies", a dark parody of The Monkees television series focusing on an outrageous grunge band. The emails were subsequently leaked and widely circulated online.
