From there, Lipstadt directed multiple detective-oriented shows, everything from the '80s classic "Miami Vice" to "Crime Story" and "The Equalizer." After directing a handful of shows in the '90s, among them an episode of the cop series "Law & Order" , Lipstadt directed several episodes of the crime drama "the Division," a series about the struggles of five San Francisco female cops. In '05, Lipstadt took on his most influential production role, as a co-executive producer and multi-episode director of the NBC thriller "Medium," which stars Patricia Arquette as a suburban mom who's also a crime-solving psychic.
