A bit of a Renaissance man in film and television, Adam Davidson holds credits as an actor, a cinematographer, a producer, a second unit director, and the role he's been most successful with--director. Davidson made an auspicious debut in 1989, when his film "The Lunch Date" went on to win an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short. His television directing debut was rather high-profile as well, coming in '98 on the prime-time procedural drama "Law & Order." From there, Davidson has gone on to direct anywhere from three to eight different shows a year, often high-quality and cutting-edge programs. In the early 2000s, he directed three episodes of the thriller "The Agency," and one episode of the quirky comedy "Monk." Later, Davidson added no less than the acclaimed shows "Six Feet Under," "Lost," and "Dexter" to his resume, along with four episodes of the medical drama "Grey's Anatomy." In 2007, he began directing several episodes of the mystery thriller "Shark," which starred James Woods; Davidson was also a producer on many of the series episodes. He subsequently worked on another edgy crime thriller, "Lie to Me," starring Tim Roth, co-executive producing a dozen episodes in addition to directing a few. He rounded out the decade on several more lauded comedy/drama shows, among them "United States of Tara," "Entourage," and "Hung." His father, Gordon Davidson, was also a TV director.
