Barbara Hall (born 17 July 1961) is an American writer and producer of television series. She is best known as the creator and producer of the series Joan of Arcadia.

Hall was born in Chatham, Virginia. She is the daughter of Ervis Hall and Flo Hall, and is the sister of Karen Hall. She graduated from Chatham High School in 1978, and Summa Cum Laude from James Madison University with a BA in English in 1982.

Shortly after graduation, Hall moved to Los Angeles, where she became a TV writer and producer. She has writing and producing credits for Northern Exposure, Chicago Hope and Judging Amy. Among other recognitions, she has received the Humanitas Prize for Television, the Television Critics Association Award, the TV Guide Award, and the Catholics in Media Award.

Hall is a singer-songwriter and founding member of the alternative country rock band The Enablers, who issued two CDs: The First Seven Songs (2003) and Come Back Soon (2004). Her solo debut CD, Handsome, came out in 2005. Hall's recordings have been featured on Chicago Hope and Joan of Arcadia.

Raised in a Methodist household, Hall passed through "a period of very loud, noisy rejection" of religion before converting to Roman Catholicism. She has said, "I went through every stage of a relationship with God from atheism to who I am now."

Hall says she has "always been interested in metaphysics and physics," and credits "science more than anything else" with her conversion. About Joan of Arcadia, she said, "My tag on the show is that it's about both physics and metaphysics, because you can't have one without the other." Physics also features prominently in her novel The Music Teacher.

Hall has written several novels:
