Jodi Knotts

Jodi began her acting career in San Francisco (1982), under the tutelage of theater guruJean Shelton, just after graduating from Montgomery High School in Santa Rosa, California. Since then, Jodi has appeared in dozens of theatrical productions on some of the most prestigious stages in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Shortly after earning her SAG Card in 1986, Jodi's career took flight, where she appeared on some top-rated TV shows and features in the last twenty years, such as Junior (1994), On ne vit qu'une fois (1968), "Stop with the Kicking/HBO", Murphy Brown (1988), Mariés, deux enfants(1987), Friends (1994), Urgences (1994), Les experts: Miami (2002) and Seinfeld(1989). After meeting her husband, actor Jim Fitzpatrick, the dynamic couple set-up shop (Five Star Studios, Inc.) to produce one- and two-act plays for the stage, in Los Angeles. During this time, film and TV producers began buying the rights to several plays that "Five Star" had created and produced, which prodded Jodi and her husband to expand their operations into film and television. And they have since created several TV pilots ("Godparent$", "Right Hand Man" & Supernatural (2005)) for the Nets, as well as, the feature film, An American Reunion (2003). Jodi and her family have recently relocated to the West/Central Coast of Florida, to build studios and produce feature films. Jodi became interested in entertainment when she was a little girl because of her father, Ed Knotts, who was a guest singer and dancer on The Dodge Dancing Party(1955) with Merv Griffin, and her cousin, Don Knotts. And she has worked with some of Hollywood's biggest stars such as Robin Williams, Kevin Pollak, Dana Carvey, Danny DeVito, Glenn Close, as well as, the Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. - IMDb Mini Biography By: T.C.
