Andrew Bernstein – Co-Executive Producer / Director
Film-making was in Andrew Bernstein’s blood, as he ventured after college into a career as an assistant director on films such as Alice, Cape Fear, The Prince Of Tides, Glengarry Glen Ross, Twelve Monkeys, and Lorenzo’s Oil, among other film and television shows. His earliest memories are from the film and television sets of his father, Walter Bernstein, an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter who wrote the films Fail Safe, The Front, Semi-Tough, House on Carroll Street, Little Miss Marker, Yanks, and The Molly Maguires, to name a few. Tagging along, Bernstein was exposed from an early age to some of the industry’s great actors, directors, and writers.
Bernstein’s directing career began with Rooftop Kisses, the festival award winning short starring Allison Janney, Maura Tierney, and Anton Yelchin. After that, he went on to direct multiple episodes of a variety of highly rated series, including: The West Wing, ER, Mad Men, Psych, House, Parenthood, Elementary, Low Winter Sun, Tyrant, and Baz Luhrman’s upcoming Netflix series The Get Down. He also has served as a producer and executive producer on Mercy, Criminal Minds Suspect Behavior, Pan Am, House, Battle Creek, and now Fear The Walking Dead.
At present, he is continuing to direct episodes of numerous network and cable shows as well as developing his own material.
