Remember when the credits rolled and dogs across America heard the command, "Sit, Ubu, Sit." Did you ever wonder: Who exactly is this Ubu? Turns out that Ubu was the black Labrador companion-muse of Gary David Goldberg, the prolific Emmy award-winning writer and creator of iconic TV shows such as "Family Ties" and "Spin City." Goldberg has listed his Brentwood home at $19,995,000.
It was built in 1942 and has 6,908 square feet, and features eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The traditional estate sits on about 3 acres and has a long, gated driveway leading to a circular motor court and a three-car garage with chauffeurs' quarters. There is a media room, a sun room, library, wine cellar and a two-bedroom staff wing. There is a pool, cabana and pool house, a cascading waterfall with koi pond, and towering palm trees.
Two-time Emmy winner Goldberg, 64, was the executive producer of 145 episodes of "Spin City" from 1996 to 2002 and 175 episodes of "Family Ties" from 1982 to '89. He produced, directed and wrote the screenplay for the movie "Must Love Dogs" in 2005.
