A former director of photographer who made the successful transition into directing features, Barry Sonnenfeld was responsible for some of the biggest hits in the 1990s, including the international sci-fi hit, “Men in Black” (1997). He previously cut his teeth as a cinematographer for Joel and Ethan Coen, shooting some of their earliest films – from “Blood Simple” (1984) through “Miller’s Crossing” (1990) – before making his own directorial debut with “The Addams Family” (1991). While he found limited success following “Men in Black” – mainly with its 2002 sequel – Sonnenfeld moved away from feature directing to start a third career as a successful television producer. Though he initially hit a few snags with several short-lived series like “Karen Sisco” (USA, 2003) and “Notes From the Underbelly” (WB, 2007-08), he found his stride with “Pushing Daisies” (ABC, 2007- ), a critically-lauded fantasy drama that earned Sonnenfeld high praise and his first ever Emmy Award.
