About The Author

Jon Cassar is a new style of television director - an in-house director who commits to one show, shepherding its shooting over several years. Nominated for an Emmy as Outstanding Director for a Drama Series, he is also acclaimed for directing and producing 24 by the Directors Guild of America. Cassar started in the film industry as a camera operator and his sharp eye and keen sense of story-telling led him to break into directing in 1992, directing episodes of such series as Profiler and Le Femme Nikita. Cassar is hailed among action genre directors for his deft handling of intricate action sequences, while actors relish working with him because he is what Hollywood insiders call an "actor's director." He also directs feature films through his company, Cassar Filmworks.
