Greg Daniels is an American television comedy writer, producer, and director.

Daniels said he became interested in comedy by watching Monty Python's Flying Circus as a child, as well as by reading books by humorist S. J. Perelman at age 11. Daniels began his career as a writer on the HBO satirical news show Not Necessarily the News before moving to Saturday Night Live. There he spent three seasons at SNL, winning an Emmy Award in the process. Greg then joined The Simpsons, writing and producing some of the most popular episodes in the history of the series (including "22 Short Films About Springfield", "Homer and Apu", "Bart Sells His Soul", and "Lisa's Wedding"). In 1992, Greg co-wrote an episode of Seinfeld entitled "The Parking Space" which aired during the third season. He won his second Emmy Award while with The Simpsons before co-creating King of the Hill with Mike Judge. King of the Hill has had the longest run of any animated series besides The Simpsons and South Park. Greg won another Emmy for his work on King of the Hill. More recently, Greg adapted the popular BBC series The Office for NBC in the U.S. to great success, and he gave the acceptance speech at the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards when the American version of The Office won the award for Outstanding Comedy Series. Daniels was the recipient of the 2008 Outstanding Television Writer Award at the Austin Film Festival.
