Joel Fields began his theatrical career with a starring turn in Luigi Pirandello's post-modern classic "Tonight We Improvise," delivering a performance widely heralded as one of the most powerful ever seen at Stagedoor Manor Summer Camp& particularly by his mother. Realizing that he had reached the pinnacle of his acting career at the age of 12, Joel turned his attentions to behind-the-scenes work. "How I Fell in Love" premiered at the Williamstown Theater Festival and played in New York at The Abingdon Theater. His other recent theater pursuits include co-authoring a new book for Cole Porter's classic musical "Can-Can" with director David Lee. Their script received a National Endowment For The Arts grant as part of the NEA's American Masterpieces project. It premiered at the Pasadena Playhouse in 2007 to sold-out houses and was honored with four LA Theater Ovation Awards. Joel recently served as a writer/executive producer on TNT's hit television show "Rizzoli & Isles." Prior to that he wrote on "Raising The Bar" for Steven Bochco and TNT, was a writer and executive-producer on ABC's Golden Globe winning series "Ugly Betty" and on the FX series "Dirt," starring Courteney Cox. He also wrote and produced on "Commander In Chief," which received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Dramatic Series of 2005/2006 and "Over There," Steven Bochco's critically acclaimed series about the Iraq war. Joel has written and produced numerous other film and television projects, including countless television movies and mini-series. Actually, one could count them -- 28 and 5 -- but why? Among the series he has produced is "Kate Brasher" for CBS, starring Mary Stuart Masterson, with whom he co-starred in "Babes In Arms" at Stagedoor Manor. Joel was just 13, the summer was sweltering, and the show called for a stage kiss& but that's a tale for another bio. Joel has also written numerous studio screenplays and pilots. In his almost non-existent free time, he serves on the board of OneVoice, a global project giving voice to Israeli and Palestinian moderates. He also served a six-year board term for TreePeople, one of L.A.'s most active environmental organizations, and has served on boards and committees for many other charity and community organizations. And, yes, he did drive an EV1 before they took it away and crushed it. Now he drives a Prius. Joel lives in Los Angeles with his wife and their two children. And of all the things in his life for which he is grateful, they are at the very top of the list.
