Phil Rosenthal is the award-winning creator, executive producer, writer, and host of “Somebody Feed Phil,” Netflix’s most popular food and travel show. This Emmy-nominated unscripted documentary series, which combines his love of food and travel with his unique brand of humor, has enjoyed over 24 million viewers in 190 countries, and has become must-see TV for foodies, restaurateurs, travelers, and armchair enthusiasts all over the world. Rosenthal recently won a 2022 Critics Choice Real TV Award for “Best Travel/Adventure Show,” and he also garnered a 2022 James Beard Award nomination for “Visual Media—Long Form.”

Rosenthal’s early writing credits include the comedy series “Down the Shore” and “Coach.” In 1995, Rosenthal created the hit CBS comedy “Everybody Loves Raymond” which premiered the following year. He served as the showrunner and executive producer for all nine years of the show's very successful run, which ended in 2005. During its original run, the show was nominated for over 70 Emmy Awards, and won 15 awards, including two for “Best Comedy Series” in 2003 and 2005.
