Sometime after college Buckley moved to New York City to start an internship with the Late Show with David Letterman, then moved into a television production job where he worked on documentaries. His books are published by Harry N. Abrams. Buckley worked as a stand-up comic as well as a TV copywriter before he started to write The Sisters Grimm series. Buckley had originally planned for The Sisters Grimm to be a television series until his wife suggested turning it into a book.
In 2010, Buckley and his writing partner, Joe Deasy, created an animated series for Cartoon Network called Robotomy. Buckley and Deasy executive produced as well as wrote the first season that starred Patton Oswalt and Dana Snyder (Master Shake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force). The series aired in CN's prime time block.
