Alan Kirschenbaum (April 19, 1961 – October 26, 2012) was an American television producer and writer. He was the co-creator of the long-running sitcom Yes, Dear, directed Everybody Loves Raymond episodes, and was the head writer for Coach for three seasons.[2] He was also a producer/writer on Raising Hope and Friend Me.

His father was Jewish-American stand-up comedian Freddie Roman.[3][4] He was a 1983 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.

Kirschenbaum was also an avid harness racing fan, having reported for ESPN on their Breeders' Crown broadcasts. Kirschenbaum was a major factor in California as an owner and breeder for many years.

In the last few years he even waived his stallion fees to help the California horsemen breed their mares to help the horse population survive in California. He was also a huge supporter of the California Sire Stakes. He also was a supporter of the California Harness Horseman’s Association, even serving as president, along with being an avid amateur driver, racing in several East vs. West Coast challenges.[5]
