[edit]Biography

A high-school dropout, Bouchard was working as a bartender in 1993 when he bumped into a former grade school teacher of his, Tom Snyder. Snyder asked if Bouchard was still drawing, and then offered Bouchard a chance to work on a few animated short films Snyder was making.[1] The shorts developed into Bouchard’s first series, Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, which he produced. He credits Jonathan KatzH. Jon Benjamin, and Tom Snyder as major influences.[2] Dr. Katz ran for six seasons, from 1995-2000. He also produced one season of Science Court, another animated show made by Soup2Nuts.[3]

Towards the end of Dr. Katz, Bouchard and Brendon Small teamed up to create Home Movies.[2] The show was picked up initially by UPN, who dropped it after five episodes; the remaining eight shows from season one, and the subsequent three seasons were shown on Adult Swim. The show was not renewed after the conclusion of the fourth season in 2004.

After Home Movies concluded and another Bouchard pilot, Saddle Rash, was not picked up, Bouchard created Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil. The show’s pilot was created on October 30, 2005, but it was not until September 2007 that the show debuted as a weekly feature on Adult Swim.[4] He is also currently a consulting producer on HBO’s The Ricky Gervais Show.[5]

Bouchard is currently producer for the series Bob’s Burgers, which premiered on January 9, 2011 on Fox.

Bouchard lives in San Francisco[6] with his wife, Holly Kretschmar. The couple married on September 6, 2006.[7]
