Jeff Ross is executive producer, along with Conan O'Brien, Jonathan Groff and David Kissinger, of "Andy Barker, P.I."
Ross also currently serves as executive producer of NBC's highly rated and critically acclaimed "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" alongside "Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels. Ross has been the show's producer since its inception on September 13, 1993.
During its nearly fourteen-year run on NBC, "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" show has consistently been nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing. In 2003, the show received its first of three consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Comedy/Variety Series. In 1997, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2005, and 2006 the Writers' Guild of America honored the show for Best Writing in a Comedy/Variety Series.
Ross, hailed by Variety for his "reputation for serving up consistently top-notch fare with a minimal amount of pretension," has been instrumental in the development of the cutting-edge comedy/variety show, including shooting episodes in the most unlikely places.
Most recently, Ross served as executive producer of the critically praised 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, with O'Brien hosting.
NBC re-affirmed their confidence in Ross and "Late Night" host Conan O'Brien by entering into a development partnership. Under this new arrangement, Ross and O'Brien head up Conaco, a production company which has produced a number of pilots for the network and the well-regarded primetime special "50 Years of NBC Late Night," the reality show "Lost," as well as "Andy Barker, P.I."
Prior to joining "Late Night," Ross was Vice President of Production at Lorne Michaels' Broadway Video Entertainment. In addition, he served as executive producer for the influential comedy troupe "The Kids in the Hall" during their run on CBS, HBO and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Ross' additional and varied producer credits include: "Paul Simon's Concert in Central Park," "The Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels pay-per-view special," HBO's "Mambo Mouth" and "Spic-O-Rama starring John Leguizamo," for which Ross won a Cable Ace Award, and "Rowan Atkinson: Not Just Another Pretty Face," to name just a few.
Born and raised in New York City, Ross is married and lives and works in Manhattan.
