Biography

American television producer and screenwriter, actor, musician, and comic book author. He is best known as co-creator and showrunner of the acclaimed web series Husbands, in which he also stars. He has also released three electronic EPs, and penned the six-issue digital comic book series Husbands: The Comic, based on his web series.

In 2008, he started his own YouTube channel, on behalf of which Bell created the "sugar coated satirical persona" named 'Cheeks'. As Cheeks, Bell wrote and performed critical commentary on celebrities, pop culture and politics.

The first season of Husbands was shot in August 2011, and premiered to critical praise, including The New Yorker's first ever review of an online series, in which Bell was hailed as "the standout, a confident flibbertigibbet who regards himself as a modern Blanche DuBois."

Bell's work in music started in 2008, co-writing and performing the title track for horror short film Side Effect. This success was followed by the release of three EPs; The Boy From Venus (2008), Glambition (2009) and T.C.M.C. (2010), along with a collection of ringtones, 2009's Put a Ringtone on It. Bell has also worked as consulting producer for VH1's Pop-Up Video.

Bell originated the concept that the word "television" is better suited for the Internet than traditional broadcast media.
