David C. Barry, on the set of "Tinsel's Town"

David C Barry is a producer and writer of both scripted material and live events. He graduated from Rutgers College before attending graduate school at USC’s School of Film and Television. David has written for Academy and Emmy Award winner Ellen Burstyn as well as with BAFTA winner and Tony/Emmy award nominee Michael Lindsay-Hogg, known for being “The Father of the Music Video” for his pioneering work with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.  

Aside from writing and producing the award-winning viral comedy TINSEL’S TOWN, (which he also co-directed with Lindsay-Hogg), David is the writer and producer of that show’s sequel, THE LULLABY LEAGUE, a TV pilot also slated for direction by Michael and which also had a successful stage reading at Strasberg Theater in Los Angeles. 

The project is about a group of veteran Hollywood actresses whose lives are upended when a world-famous reality star is sentenced to do community service in their retirement home.  That star is Tinsel Townsend from TINSEL'S TOWNTHE LULLABY LEAGUE is a project that finally tackles an age-old question: What would happen if Kim Kardashian was forced to move in with The Golden Girls?  Answer: Lots.

In addition to writing filmed content, David is also a producer of live events and is one of Hollywood’s most outspoken voices against ageism, especially as it relates to women.  David feels a responsibility as a writer to populate his stories with people of all ages and all points of view. 

We hear familiar sayings like 'grow old and die' and accept them as one-sided truisms. Why don't we also hear 'grow old and live'? That seems far truer to me and gives us all something to look forward to other than a funeral.
