Biography

One of the most accomplished television directors of the early 21st century, Allen Coulter distinguished himself by helming a wide variety of quality projects, ranging from light comedy with "Sex and the City" (HBO, 1998-2004) to searing drama on "The Sopranos" (HBO, 1999-2007), "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05) and "Damages" (FX, 2007- ). His success with these high-profile series netted him numerous award nominations and naturally led to a shot at a major studio feature with the period biopic "Hollywoodland" (2007). In all cases, Coulter proved he was among the most versatile and dependable directors working in the industry.
