A driven person by the name of Marc Cherry from Fullerton, California knew that he could make it in Television. After graduating from Cal Stat Fullerton, he decided to move to Hollywood, California to make his creative mark. With hopes of getting a writing job with one of the networks, he was met with disappointment because the 1998 Writers Strike just hit when he arrived to Hollywood which made it virtually impossible for him to acquire a writing job at the networks. Out of desperation, Marc Cherry took a position as an assistant for TV Actress by the name of Dixie Carter. Dixie Carter at the time was on a TV show called Designing Women.
He took this time to build his relationships and to wait out the writers strike. He then received his break and was offered a writing job for the Golden Girls. After several writing jobs for TV/Films, Marc Cherry wanted to make his mark.
