Early life

Franklin was born on January 21, 1955 in Inglewood, California.[2] Franklin worked as a substitute teacher in his hometown before becoming a writer.[3]


Franklin began his television career as a writer and producer for Laverne & Shirley and Bosom Buddies.[4] Franklin pitched his own show to ABC called "House of Comics" which featured three comics living together.[5] ABC was looking for a family sitcom, so Franklin added children and the idea evolved into the show Full House. Full House ran on the ABC Network from 1987-1995.

After Full House, Franklin created Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, starring comedian Mark Curry.[6] Franklin departed Hanging with Mr. Cooper in September 1992.[6] His other TV credits include both writing and production on shows such as, It's Garry Shandling's Show, and Malcolm & Eddie.[4] He also wrote, produced and directed the first Olsen twins movie, To Grandmother's House We Go.

Franklin's most notable film writing credits include the teen comedies Just One of the Guys (1985) and Summer School (1987), starring Mark Harmon.

On April 20, 2015, Netflix announced the streaming service would pick-up thirteen episodes of Fuller House, a sequel to Full House.[7] Along with Full House stars Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber returning, Netflix also announced Franklin would oversee the production along with Robert L. Boyett and Thomas L. Miller.[7]
