Jed Spingarn is the creator and executive producer of Nickelodeon's The Thundermans . Spingarn is a 3-time Emmy Award winner, who has written or produced on such shows as Pinky and the Brain, Jimmy Neutron, Back at the Barnyard and Big Time Rush.  Born and raised in New York City, he graduated from Brown University. After college, Spingarn had a cult hit at a Washington D.C. theater with a midnight play parodying the Batman television series. It ran to sellout crowds for several months and was featured on NPR. Spingarn thought he was on his way, until he was issued a cease-and- desist order by Warner Brothers and quickly skipped town.        Back in New York, he wrote articles for women’s magazines under the byline “Jenni Gaspard,” an anagram of his name, professing wisdom on subjects he had no knowledge of.  Ironically, he now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, daughter, female dog and female cat.
