James Burrows is a son of Ruth and Abe Burrows, a composer, director and writer, and grew up in New York in a Jewish family with his sister Laurie Burrows Grad. He went to the High School of Music & Art, and later studied at Oberlin College and then the Yale School of Drama, from where he graduated.

Burrows’ directional debut came in an episode of the Golden Globe Award-winning series “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” in 1974, and he made three more episodes through 1976. From 1975 to 1977, James directed 19 episodes of the Golden Globe Award-winning “Phyllis”, while he also worked on “The Bob Newhart Show” (1975-1977), “The Tony Randall Show” (1976-1977), and “Laverne & Shirley” (1976-1977). His net worth was well established.

From 1978 to 1982, James directed 75 episodes of the Golden Globe Award-winning show called “Taxi” starring Judd Hirsch, Jeff Conaway, and Danny DeVito. Burrows made a feature movie titled “Partners” (1982) starring Ryan O’Neal and John Hurt, but he spent most of the ‘80s working on the Golden Globe Award-winning series “Cheers” (1982-1993), directing 237 episodes in that span.

From 1993 to 1997, James created 32 episodes of the Golden Globe-winning show “Frasier”, and he also worked on the Primetime Emmy Award-winning series “News Radio” (1995-1996).

Burrows made pilot episodes for both “Two and a Half Men” (2003) and “The Big Bang Theory” (2007), while he also directed all 19 episodes of the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated “The Class” (2006-2007). In the late 2000s, James made 17 episodes of “Back to You” (2007-2008) and 36 episodes of “Gary Unmarried” (2008-2010), all of which increased his net worth by a large margin.

From 2010 to 2016, Burrows directed 49 episodes of the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated series “Mike & Molly”, 12 episodes of “Partners” (2012-2013), and 32 episodes of “The Millers” (2013-2015). Most recently, James has worked on “Crowded” (2016) and “Man with a Plan” (2016- ), and will direct the ninth season of “Will & Grace”, 11 years after the eighth season was aired.

Regarding his personal life, James Burrows was married to Linda Solomon from 1981 to 1993 and has three children with her, while in 1997, he married Debbie Easton, and the pair is living in Manhattan, New York.

#Quote
1I'll tell you what I love about directing: the surprise. You never know what's going to happen with your piece until an audience weighs in. You may think that you know what will be funny as shit but then a group of bused-in Middle Americans says is is shit and you're shaking your head in dismay. This surprise I find exhilarating and scary--and I love it.
