Lev L. Spiro has directed over 160 episodes, pilots and features for television, including such Emmy Award winning series as Modern Family, Weeds, My Name Is Earl, Ugly Betty, The O.C., Gilmore Girls, Dawson’s Creek, and Arrested Development. Lev’s specific shows have won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Children’s Program (“Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie”), a DGA Nomination for Outstanding Directorial Achievement (“Minutemen”), a GLAAD Award for Outstanding TV Episode of the Year (“Popular”) and many more.
Pilots picked up to series include the hour long “Jane By Design” and “Summerland”, and the half hour comedies “Do Over”, “JONAS”, and “The Jersey”. In addition to the “Wizards” and “Minutemen” movies, Lev directed the hit dvd film “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3” for Disney, and the cult hit “Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland” for Lionsgate.
Currently, Lev is directing the new anthology series “The Dolly Parton Theater” for Netflix in Atlanta. He is sorely missed by his dogs Luna and T. Beau, and sometimes missed by his wife Producer/Writer Melissa Rosenberg.
