Fifteen years ago, Phil Rosenthal created the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, a show based on the absurdities and drama of normal people's real-life experiences (including those of the star, Ray Romano). The show became a huge hit and ran for nine seasons.

Now, he's the subject of a new documentary called Exporting Raymond, about the process of adapting his hit show for a Russian audience. He discusses culture shock and the challenges of translating Everybody Loves Raymond -- including tailoring it to viewers for whom the traditional sitcom is relatively unfamiliar, without losing the heart of the show itself.
