Bill Oakley (born February 27, 1966) is an American television writer and producer. After becoming best friends and writing partners with Josh Weinstein in high school, he attended Harvard University and was Vice President of the Harvard Lampoon. After working on several short term media projects, including as a writer on the variety show Sunday Best, Oakley was unemployed for a long period.

Oakley and Weinstein eventually penned a spec script for Seinfeld which led to them writing "Marge Gets a Job", an episode of The Simpsons. Subsequently, the two were hired to write for the show on a permanent basis in 1992. After writing episodes such as "$pringfield ", "Bart vs. Australia" and "Who Shot Mr. Burns?", the two were appointed executive producers and showrunners for the seventh and eighth seasons of the show. They attempted to include several emotional episodes focusing on the Simpson family, as well as several high concept episodes such as "Homer's Enemy", "Two Bad Neighbors" and "The Principal and the Pauper", winning three Primetime Emmy Awards for their work.

After leaving The Simpsons, Oakley and Weinstein created Mission Hill. The show was plagued by promotional issues and was swiftly canceled. They worked as consulting producers on Futurama, then created The Mullets in 2003. The two wrote several unsuccessful TV pilots, and were due to serve as showrunners on Sit Down, Shut Up in 2009. Oakley left the project over a contract dispute. He has since written for The Cleveland Show, without Weinstein. Oakley is married to fellow writer Rachel Pulido.
