Biography

A southern California native, Franks earned a BA in English from the University of California, Irvine in 1991 while also doing stand-up comedy and fronting the popular Orange County band, Friendly Indians. While a graduate student in the film department of Loyola Marymount University, Franks career was launched when his first screenplay, "Big Daddy" was purchased by Columbia Pictures as a vehicle for Adam Sandler, and went on to gross more than $160 million domestically. On the heels of this success, Franks went on to create and work on more than a dozen other feature film projects, including the action/comedy "Skiptracer" for producer Neal Moritz and Sony Pictures, and the feature version of "I Dream of Jeannie."

On the television side, Franks has been involved in numerous projects for ABC, CBS and NBC networks. A fan for many years of classic, light detective shows like "Moonlighting" and "Magnum P.I.," Franks created a character who shares a similar tone -- a psychic detective who has no psychic abilities ... and "Psych" was born.
