Born in New York City, Levin grew up in Rockland County, NY, and graduated from Amherst College in Massachusetts. Moving to Manhattan, he worked for several major advertising agencies, including Young & Rubicam and BBDO, as a copywriter and then as associate creative director. In his spare time, he wrote television spec scripts, and, in 1990, was offered a staff writing position on the series Baby Talk, inspired by the hit film Look Who's Talking. The offer from that show brought him to Los Angeles.
Levin went on to write for several other series, including the award-winning Dream On. He joined the Mad About You staff during the 1993-94 season, rising through the ranks to co-executive producer, before being tapped as an executive producer for the 1997-98 season.
In addition to writing for film and television, Levin has published a play entitled Death in Scarsdale, and has also written some short fiction.
