Biography

A native of New Jersey, Adam Bernstein is a director with a prolific list of credits in television throughout the 1990s and beyond, though two of his earlier efforts were in film. In '94, Bernstein had his feature directorial debut, transforming Julia Sweeney's iconic gender-neutral character from "Saturday Night Live" to the big screen, in "It's Pat", which was a critical and commercial bomb. In '97, he wrote and directed a much smaller film, the Jewish-mobster crime drama "Six Ways to Sunday", which co-starred singer Deborah Harry as an overprotective mother. Bernstein closed out the '90s helming several episodes of the sketch-comedy series "Upright Citizens Brigade", and then began directing the first of nine episodes of the acclaimed HBO prison drama, "Oz". Bernstein directed a dozen episodes of hospital sitcom "Scrubs" beginning in 2001 and joined his most successful creative team to date in '06, as a writer and supervising producer on the extremely successful NBC comedy "30 Rock", created by "SNL" vet Tina Fey. The job led to Bernstein's Emmy win, for Outstanding Comedy Series, in '07. Many of Bernstein's directing jobs in the early 2000s were on some of television's most progressive and creative shows, from four episodes of Showtime's "Californication" to six episodes of the award-winning drug-themed drama "Breaking Bad" on AMC, as well as two episodes each of the edgy drama "Nurse Jackie" and the irreverent comedy "Bored to Death".
