Raised in Farmington Hills, in a family of Irish ancestry. Al attended and matriculated from Farmington Hills Harrison High School, and later enrolled at Harvard University when he was only sixteen years old, graduating in 1981 with a BA in mathematics. During his studies, Jean met Mike Reiss, and they subsequently teamed up for their writing of the “Harvard Lampoon”, and Al eventually became vice-president of the publication. Upon graduation, the two worked on various television productions. as producers and writers on shows such as “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson”, “Sledge Hammer!”, “ALF” and “It’s Garry Shandling’s Show”. However, in 1989 Al was offered a job as a writer on the animated sitcom “The Simpsons”, a project many of his friends rejected, assuming it wouldn’t last long. Being a fan of Groening, Brooks and Simon’s work, Jean accepted and took the job along with Reiss. During the first season of the show, he stated it was the greatest project in his career and desired to continue working on it. The Reiss and Jean duo also served as show runners of “The Simpsons”, from its third season.

After its fourth season, the two left the show in order to create the animated show “The Critic”, about film critic Jay Sherman; it was first aired on ABC in January 1994 and received good critiques, but was short-lived. The same year, the Jean and Reiss duo signed a deal with The Walt Disney Company to produce new TV shows for ABC, and the first one was “Teen Angel”.

In 1998, Al returned to “The Simpsons” in the show’s tenth season, and once again became show runner three years later, in season thirteen. He was also one of the producers and writers of “The Simpsons Movie”(2007), and often appears on the “Simpsons” DVD audio commentaries. For his overall work on the show, Jean has received eight Emmy Awards, one Peabody Award and the Animation Writers Caucus Animation Award by the Writers Guild of America. He and Reiss also won an Annie Award in 1997 for Best Producing in a TV Production.

When it comes to his private life, Al married television writer Stephanie Gillis in 2002. They have two daughters, and reside in Los Angeles, California.
