A former prosecutor with an unparalleled record of success, Nancy has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Dr. Phil and Larry King Live, among others, dispensing her firebrand take on the modern justice system. In addition, she was a highlight and fan favorite of Dancing with the Stars: Season 13, finishing in the competition’s coveted Top 5. All of her earnings from the show went to support the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. In 2011, Grace was named one of the most impactful and powerful women in entertainment by both leading industry trade magazines, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. Grace’s first book, Objection!, was published in 2005 and became an instant New York Times bestseller. Her two subsequent novels, The Eleventh Victim (2009) and Death on the D-List (2010), were also New York Times bestsellers, and a television movie adaptation of The Eleventh Victim aired on Lifetime in November 2012. Grace is an executive producer on the film project.
She is the recipient of several American Women in Radio & Television “Gracie Awards” for her Nancy Grace Investigates primetime report on Court TV and has been awarded the “Individual Achievement/Best Program Host” honor. Grace has also been widely recognized by many notable organizations (including the Carole Sund/Carrington Foundation, Crime Victims United of California and The Retreat) for her advocacy work on behalf of victims’ rights. Grace’s life changed forever in 1979 when her fiancé, Keith Griffin, was shot and killed. In the aftermath of that crime, Nancy abandoned plans to become an English professor and turned her focus to criminal justice. She became a Law Review graduate of Mercer Law School and received her degree in constitutional and criminal law from New York University. Additionally, she donated her time to help staff the hotline at an Atlanta battered women’s center for over 10 years.
Nancy Grace initially came to television from the Atlanta Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, where she served more than a decade as a special prosecutor of felony cases involving murder, rape, child molestation and arson. Known for her authentic sensibility and for not holding back her opinion on high-profile cases, she was tapped to co- host Court TV’s Cochran and Grace and, later, the live daily trial coverage program, Closing Arguments. She also presided over the daytime hit Swift Justice with Nancy Grace, for which she received an Emmy Award nomination.
2007 saw Grace’s marriage to investment banker David Linch. Another life milestone followed – the birth of twins John David and Lucy. Now, everything important in Grace’s life – including her unwavering crusade for true justice – comes back to family. Nancy Grace, her husband and her twins reside in Atlanta and New York City.
Yes, Bob Saget has starred in many successful television shows, including two of the most family-friendly shows network TV has ever produced (“Full House” and “Americas Funniest Home Videos”) but he’s also an out of his mind, Grammy-nominated standup comedian for over thirty years. From his HBO special “That Ain’t Right” to his scene-stealing cameos in “Entourage”, and “The Aristocrats”, it’s always effective as Saget embraces his dark side. From directing MGM’s cult favorite feature film “Dirty Work”, to directing and producing the highly acclaimed ABC television movie, “For Hope”, to starring in the critically acclaimed, Paul Weitz off-Broadway play, “Privilege”, to starring on Broadway in the Tony Award winning “The Drowsy Chaperone”, Bob Saget shows no signs of stopping. Ever. In 2007 came the hugely successful DVD release of “Farce of the Penguins”, an R-rated comedy/documentary/love story, that he voiced-over, wrote, directed, and produced, with producer David Permut. And then came the hit NBC quiz show “1 VS 100”, where Bob ad-libbed his way through the one-hour prime time format. In 2008, “The Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget” premiered to the second highest ratings of all TV that night, second only to the Olympics. And in 2009 Bob’s sitcom, “Surviving Suburbia” aired on ABC. For many years now, Bob has been a proud board member of the Scleroderma Research Foundation. He co-produces and hosts “Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine” fundraising events in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. To date, they have raised over 30 million dollars for the SRF.
Bob was seen reprising the role of “Himself” on HBO’s hit series “Entourage” and he starred in his own documentary comedy series for A&E titled, “Strange Days with Bob Saget”, an exploration of unusual subcultures in America. In May, Bob completed his first Australian theater tour visiting Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Bob continues touring, playing to sold out audiences in theaters and universities across North America and in 2012 he hosted the Montreal Comedy Festival’s first live 90 minute JFL XXX TV show which continues to air across Canada on The Movie Network. His 2013 one-hour stand-up special, That’s What I’m Talkin’ About, was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. The special was filmed at The Moore Theatre in Seattle, premiered on Showtime in May 2013 and is now available as a CD, DVD and download, and on Netflix. Bob’s first book is a New York Times Best Seller – “DIRTY DADDY: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian” was released on April 8, 2014 to critical acclaim with Vanity Fair calling it, “Hilarious and at times heartbreaking.” The book is published by It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins and is available everywhere in hardcover or iBook or Kindle, as an audio book either on CD or download, recorded by Bob himself.
And Dirty Daddy just came out in paperback!
