Author and Screen Writer.

One of the founders of the Screen Writers Guild (now called Writers Guild of America) in 1954.

His brother is Ernest Freeman (writer/producer).

Devery Freeman served his screenwriting apprenticeship at Columbia beginning in 1946. Evidently, his talents were highly prized by comedian Red Skelton, as witness Freeman's extensive contributions to Skelton's The Fuller Brush Man (1948), The Good Humor Man (1950) and Watch the Birdie (1951). Freeman moved to Universal in the early 1950s, working on such mirthsome projects as the "Francis" series. He was employed by RKO during that studio's final years of activity, scripting the very last feature filmed on the RKO lot, The Girl Most Likely (1957).

Moving into television, Devery Freeman served as producer of such situation comedies as The Ann Sothern Show (1958-61), Pete and Gladys (1960-61) and the short-lived Jack Klugman vehicle Harris Against the World (1964).
