    So just from recent Emmys, I can think of the following comedies where a creator was also the lead star – Atlanta, Master of None, Better Things, 30 Rock, Girls, Barry, Louie, Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Scanning over the writing nominees for drama this century to get an idea, I don’t see any actors. So are there Drama shows starring their creators out there?

    Jason Bateman is not the showrunner of Ozark, but he is an executive producer and the lead director.

    Jessica Biel (The Sinner), Reese and Nicole (BLL). They aren’t necessarily the creators but they did bring the projects to fruition.

    Wow I didn’t know this, thanks.
    Apparently he also starred in/created comedies Sex & Drugs and The Job, but I haven’t seen any episodes of his shows.
