Biography

Director Anthony Hemingway is best known for working with David Simon on his acclaimed TV series "The Wire" and "Treme. " Hemingway got his start as a production assistant on the 1993 big-screen drama "Household Saints," starring Tracey Ullman. By 1998, he was working as a second assistant director in the TV movies "Carriers" and "Monday After the Miracle." Hemingway's first collaboration with David Simon came in 2000 when he acted as first assistant director on Simon's Emmy-winning HBO mini-series "The Corner." The following year he was the second assistant director on Michael Mann's boxing biopic "Ali," starring Will Smith as the heavyweight champion. After working as first assistant director on the HBO prison drama "Oz," the movie drama "Changing Lanes" (with Ben Affleck and Samuel L. Jackson), and Jonathan Demme's political thriller remake, "The Manchurian Candidate," Hemingway again teamed up with David Simon in 2002 for "The Wire," the critically acclaimed HBO series which expanded on the themes of crime, the drug trade, and poverty from the miniseries "The Corner." Hemingway served as first assistant director on 23 episodes of "The Wire," eventually directing two episodes himself. He subsequently directed episodes of the medical drama "ER," HBO's vampire drama "True Blood," and the NBC comedy "Community." In 2010, he began directing episodes of another series created by Simon for HBO. "Treme," which he also produced, looked at an assortment of characters living in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
