#1. Before Glee
He grew up in Newton, Massachusetts where his mother was president of Hadassah Women’s Zionist Organization of America until 2011. Falchuk, 45, went to the American Film Institute after high school, and in 1993, graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
He then took to writing screenplays. His TV career began with Mutant X, a sci-fi show about genetically advanced mutants. 2003 was a game changer for Falchuk, who was hired to work on the first season of Nip/Tuck, where he met and later became good friends with Ryan Murphy.
#2. How Did Falchuk Join the Glee Club?
Brad Falchuk didn’t just join the club —he co-founded it! He and Murphy teamed up with Ian Brennan to create Glee. Continuing their relationship with the network, they transitioned from their FX medical drama to a lighter Fox hit.
The award-winning series gave the showrunners fortune and recognition. Falchuk received nominations for Writers Guild of America awards, for Best New Series and Best Comedy Series, and received an AFI for TV Program of the Year.
Looking at all his success, Falchuck signed a seven-figure deal with 20th Century Fox Television to continue with Glee and create more shows for the network.

Teaming up with Murphy again, the two created American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, one of the biggest shows last year, with countless nominations and wins, including Critics’ Choice, BET, Golden Globe, Emmy, and TCA awards.
#4. Brad Falchuk’s Big Heart
Falchuk is a true artist at heart, and he gave back to society by co-founding the nonprofit organization, Young Storytellers.
