Peter Barsocchini wrote the Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel Original Movie "High School Musical," and his inspiration for the character names came from his daughter, Gabriella, and her friends. He was nominated for the prestigious Humanitas Prize for his work of the contemporary movie musical. He also is writing another television musical, "Define Normal," for Lifetime Television.
Barsocchini began his professional writing career while still attending high school in the San Francisco Bay Area, writing more than three hundred columns about popular music for the San Mateo Times. In addition he worked as a freelance stringer for the Associated Press and the San Francisco Examiner, as well as contributing reviews to the Associated Press and Rolling Stone. As a young journalist (he told the editors he was 18, though he was only 16), he spent weekends backstage at the legendary Fillmore West, covering artists such as Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, The Grateful Dead, the Kinks and Elton John.
Upon graduating from the University of California, Santa Cruz, with a degree in creative writing, Barsocchini was hired by the Merv Griffin Company as an interviewer for the Merv Griffin Show. In 1979 he was named producer, a position he held for seven years. During that time he won an Emmy Award twice as producer of a talk/variety program, the youngest talk-show producer ever to receive the award.
Barsocchini produced two primetime specials, "Secrets Women Never Share" and its sequel, "Secrets Men Never Share."
Barsocchini and family make their home in Los Angeles and Pebble Beach, California.
