Marta Kauffman was born into a Jewish family, a daughter of Dorothy and Herman Kauffman and grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs. She went to Marple Newtown High School – where she actually directed the school play “Our Town” in 1974 – and then studied at Brandeis University from where she graduated with a Bachelors degree in Theater in 1978, and where she met her friend and future collaborator, David Crane.

Kauffman started her writing career when wrote an episode of comedy series “Everything’s Relative” in 1987. Her bigger project came in 1990 when she and David Crane created the series called “Dream On”, starring Brian Benben, Denny Dillon, and Wendie Malick. The show went on for six seasons until 1996, and won two Primetime Emmy Awards. It launched Kauffman and Crane out of anonymity, and they subsequently worked together on numerous projects.

They created the comedy show “The Powers That Be” (1992-1993) with John Forsythe, Holland Taylor, and Eve Gordon, which aired for two seasons and 21 episodes in total. Kevin Bright joined Kauffman and Crane in making the “Family Album” in 1993, but the series lasted only six episodes and was cancelled due to low ratings. Kauffman and Crane did a TV movie called “Couples” (1994) before creating one of their most popular series in the ’90’s – “Friends”.

“Friends”, with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, and Matthew Perry went on for ten seasons from 1994 to 2004, and received plenty of great critiques and rewards, including a Golden Globe, Six Emmy’s and a BAFTA Award. The show had 236 episodes overall and significantly increased Marta Kauffman’s net worth.

Kauffman hasn’t been quite as successfuk since, but had other projects including “Veronica’s Closet” (1997-2000) starring Kirstie Alley, Kathy Najimy, Dan Cortese, Wallace Langham, and Daryl Mitchell. She was also an executive producer of 34 episodes of “Jesse” (1998-2000) starring Christina Applegate, and later the executive producer of “Related” (2005-2006), and the TV movie “Gifted” (2007), which also added to her net worth. In the meantime, she wrote the title character for the series “Joey” (2004-2006) starring Matt LeBlanc. Most recently, Kauffman was a creator of TV movie “Five” (2011) with Patricia Clarkson, Rosario Dawson, and Lyndsy Fonseca, produced the documentary “Hava Nagila: The Movie” (2012), wrote three episodes of “Georgia” (2012), produced “Call Me Crazy: A Five Film” (2013), and created the series “Grace and Frankie” (2015- ) starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, increasing further her net worth.

#Quote
1 [when 'Friends' was canceled] We did not want to go out on the bottom. We wanted to feel more like it was time for your child to go to college, not die.
2 [on 'Friends'] It was so surprising to us how invested the audience was in these characters, how desperately they wanted them to be happy, how putting them together made some kind of weird sense.
