for foodies, restaurateurs, travelers, and armchair enthusiasts all over the world. Rosenthal recently won a
2022 Critics Choice Real TV Award for “Best Travel/Adventure Show,” and he also garnered a 2022 James
Beard Award nomination for “Visual Media—Long Form.” Season 6 of this hit series is set to launch Fall

Rosenthal has expanded his love of humor, food, and human connection by launching his first podcast
“Naked Lunch,” in May 2022, which is live on Stitcher, SiriusXM’s mobile app, Pandora, and all major
podcast listening platforms. Featuring world-renowned guests, this show is “an informal meeting of wits,
minds and hearts” over lunch from some of his favorite eateries around Los Angeles.
Up next, Rosenthal will release his highly anticipated book SOMEBODY FEED PHIL: THE BOOK on October
18, 2022, via Simon & Schuster. As the companion cookbook to his hit Netflix show, this is the ultimate
collection of must-have recipes, never-before-heard stories, behind-the-scenes photos, and more from the
first four seasons of the beloved series.

Rosenthal was born in Queens, New York, and moved with his parents and brother to New City, New York,
in Rockland County, where he was raised. After graduating from Hofstra University on Long Island, where
he majored in theater, he embarked on a career as an actor, writer, and director in New York City. In 1989,
he relocated to Los Angeles.

Rosenthal’s early writing credits include the comedy series “Down the Shore” and “Coach.” In 1995,
Rosenthal created the hit CBS comedy “Everybody Loves Raymond” which premiered the following year.
He served as the showrunner and executive producer for all nine years of the show's very successful run, which ended in 2005. During its original run, the show was nominated for over 70 Emmy Awards, and won 15 awards, including two for “Best Comedy Series” in 2003 and 2005. Rosenthal won the 2002 Writers
Guild Award for “Excellence in Television Writing” for his “Italy” script.

After the series wrapped, Rosenthal penned a book on the art of comedy and the making of a sitcom
classic. YOU’RE LUCKY YOU’RE FUNNY: HOW LIFE BECOMES A SITCOM was published in 2007 via Penguin Publishing Group.

Rosenthal also co-wrote “America: A Tribute to Heroes,” the 9/11 telethon which aired on all four
networks in September 2001, for which he won a Peabody Award and an Emmy nomination for
“Outstanding Writing.”

Rosenthal then went on to write, direct, and star in his first feature film for Sony Pictures. EXPORTING
RAYMOND, the true story about the attempt to turn “Everybody Loves Raymond” into a Russian sitcom,
was met with critical acclaim upon its release in October 2010.

In 2015, Rosenthal embarked on a new journey by creating his first travel food series “I’ll Have What Phil’s
Having.” This PBS documentary series, which is the precursor to “Somebody Feed Phil,” received two Taste
Awards and won the 2016 James Beard Award for “Best Television Program, on Location.”

In October 2020, Rosenthal launched Somebody Feed the People, an initiative of the Rosenthal Family
Foundation that supports organizations making an impact and building community through food. This
inclusive and non-partisan initiative partners with organizations across the U.S. that address food access
and insecurity, support chefs and restaurant workers, create employment pathways, and strengthen the
health of our food systems.

Rosenthal lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Monica Horan (who played Amy on “Everybody Loves
Raymond”), and their two children.
