Rob Burnett spent his childhood in his hometown, where he attended West Essex High School. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at Tufts University, from which he graduated in 1984, majoring in English.

Right after graduation, Rob’s professional career in the entertainment industry began, as he was hired by David Letterman in 1985 to become a part of the writing staff of his talk show “Late Night With David Letterman” on the CBS channel, which marked the beginning of his net worth. Three years later, he became the head writer of the show, and he also wrote two TV film titles “Late Night With David Letterman: 6th Anniversary Special”, and “Late Night With David Letterman: 7th Anniversary Special”.

In 1995 Rob started his career as a producer, with the TV film “Late Show With David Letterman: Video Special”, after which he created and produced the TV series “Bonnie” (1995-1996). During the same year he continued to line up successes, collaborating with David Letterman until 2000, when he began producing and creating the TV series entitled “Ed”, alongside Jon Beckerman. The TV series lasted on the NBC channel until 2004, adding a considerable amount to his net worth, and it earned him an Emmy nomination for writing.

To speak further about Rob’s career, he was the executive producer of the 2005 film “Strangers With Candy”, directed by Paul Dinello, and two years later, he became the executive producer and creator of the TV series “The Knights Of Prosperity”, and also produced “Coming Home: Military Families Cope With Change” and “Families Stand Together: Feeling Secure In Tough Times”, both in 2009. All of these projects increased Rob’s net worth by a large margin.

Most recently, he again collaborated with Beckerman on the film “We Made This Film” in 2012, and directed the 2016 film “The Fundamentals of Caring”, which certainly increased his wealth.

Furthermore, Rob also serves as the President and CEO of David Letterman’s production company called Worldwide Pants, Inc. He is also the Co-President of B&B Productions, which contributes further to his fortune.

Thanks to his accomplishments in the entertainment industry, Rob has won five Emmy Awards and received more than 30 nominations. Moreover, he is the winner of the 2008 P.T. Barnum Award from Tufts University.

Speaking about his personal life, Rob Burnett is married to Eunice, and the couple has two sons and a daughter. His current residence is in Greenwich, Connecticut.
