Jack Kenny (born 9 March 1958) is an American television writer, and the creator of the controversial NBC television show The Book of Daniel. Kenny also co-created the highly acclaimed but somewhat controversial comedy Titus (broadcast by Fox Network from 2000 and 2002) With his writing partner Brian Hargrove and comedian Christopher Titus.
The Book of Daniel was cancelled after four episodes had aired. Though NBC gave no official explanation, the program had been criticized by the American Family Association and other groups for its content. In a 2006 article in The Advocate, Kenny confirmed his homosexuality and took issue with the LGBT community for not acting when he and the show were attacked.
Kenny was born in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Sally (née Cheviak) and John Joseph Kenny, Jr., a business manager.
