Directed by Michael Shapiro

After directing regional and Off-Broadway theater in 1998, Michael Shapiro came to the attention of Jerry Bruckheimer and directed an episode of Soldier of Fortune. Subsequently he directed, again for Bruckheimer and Disney, MAX-Q, a "Movie of the Week" about a space shuttle mission gone badly awry, for which he was nominated for an Emmy in the special effects category. His most recent episodic work has been CSI for CBS, The Dead Zone for USA, and Tremors for Sci-Fi. He will be directing Street this spring, an NBA basketball comedy that is green-lit at MGM.
