#Fact
1Stepfather of Jade Scott Lewis.
2Cousin of Patti LuPone and Robert LuPone.
3He usually writes early in the morning just after waking up. He has said that most of the time ideas will come to him at this time from dreams he has had during the night. Prior to going to bed he usually will briefly look over the scenes he plans to write in the morning in order to generate these dreams.
4Appeared at a St. Elsewhere (1982) reunion at Buffalo State College, his alma mater, in the 2000-2001 school year along with cast members Ed Begley Jr. and Howie Mandel, among others.
5Graduate of Canisius High School, class of '69 and active alumni member/donor
6The character played by Dennis Farina on Law & Order (1990) is named Fontana. According to creator Dick Wolf, this is no coincidence.
7Attended Buffalo State College, Class of 1973
8He got his first big break in television in 1982, from producer Bruce Paltrow who hired him to write for the series St. Elsewhere (1982).
9Producer Dick Wolf is old friends with producer Tom Fontana. They often use actors from each other's TV series, usually resulting in the actors working on two shows at once. Examples are J.K. Simmons on Law & Order (1990) and Oz (1997), Christopher Meloni and Dean Winters on Oz (1997) and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999) and Kathryn Erbe on Oz (1997) and Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001). Richard Belzer famously leaped from producers' show to show as "Detective John Munch".
