American television writer, producer, and actor Warren Keith Lieberstein works in the industry. He has developed into one of the most important figures in the entertainment business throughout the course of his career. Following in the footsteps of his actor brother Paul, Lieberstein made his acting debut in the critically praised drama “Sleepover” in 1995. Lieberstein grew up in a family where having a Hollywood dream wasn’t seen as unreasonable. He then started his writing career with the short-lived sketch comedy “Hype” and followed that up in 2003 by penning a few episodes for Will Smith’s well-liked sitcom “All of Us.” His skill and reputation as a writer were further strengthened by his work on shows like “Modern Men” and “Carpoolers.” He joined his brother on the fifth season writing crew of the hugely successful comedy series “The Office” in 2009. At the beginning of the sixth season’s filming, he was promoted to producer. He has recently written and worked as a consultant producer for the comedy series “Hit the Road” on Audience.
Warren Lieberstein’s Career
In John F. Sullivan’s film “Sleepover,” where he portrayed a character named Justin, Warren Lieberstein made his acting debut. The 1995 movie, which could have been just another independent teen drama with the same tired tropes, was distinguished by the director’s ability to keep the audience on the edge of their seats the entire time.
In 1999, Lieberstein voiced the character Bills Are Had to Be Broken in the Fox animated sitcom “King of the Hill” and made an appearance in the drama episode “Truth or Consequences” of The WB’s drama series “Hyperion Bay.” In the 2011 episode of “The Office,” “Goodbye, Michael,” he also made a cameo as Rory Flenderson, the brother of Toby Flenderson (played by his real-life brother Paul).
The first project for which he served as the writer was the sketch comedy “Hype” on the WB. Even though the show was short-lived (just one season), it helped him get recognition as a comedy writer, much like Paul, who entered the field a year earlier.
Then he wrote two episodes of “All of Us” on UPN. I Saw Tia Kissing Santa Clause and Birthdaze were both episodes that aired in 2003. He contributed to Second Time Around on UPN during the 2004–05 television season, another ephemeral sitcom. He contributed to the writing team for The WB’s “Modern Men” as well (2006).
His subsequent endeavor was the ABC single-camera comedy “Carpoolers,” for which he penned the teleplay “Lost in America,” two episodes, “Down for the Count,” and “Fist Fight.” In the fifth season of “The Office,” Lieberstein was hired as a writer, penning the episodes “Cafe Disco,” “Koi Pond,” “Whistleblower,” “China,” “After Hours,” “Turf War,” and “Paper Airplane” (2013).
For his writing involvement in the program, he was nominated for a Writers Guild of America award. Lieberstein worked as a producer on this NBC mockumentary series starting in the fifth season.
He co-produced 11 episodes of season six in 2009 and produced 29 episodes of seasons six and seven between 2009 and 2011; he was the supervising producer of 22 episodes of seasons seven and eight between 2011 and 2012; he was co-executive producer of 13 episodes of seasons eight and nine between 2012 and 2013, and he served as consulting producer for another 13 episodes of seasons eight and nine between 2012 and 2013 (season eight and nine).
Throughout its one-season run, he co-executive produced and authored multiple episodes of ABC’s “Back in the Game.” In 2017, he worked on the first season of Audience’s “Hit the Road” as a writer and consultant producer.
