Biography

Don Medford, born Donald Muller, was a prolific director who worked on more than 75 different television series in a career that spanned from 1951 to 1989. His TV career began with the science fiction horror anthology series "Tales of Tomorrow." Medford worked on the series for two seasons, and became very invested in its production. He earned his first writing credit for providing the story for the episode titled "The Miraculous Serum," and made his only appearance as an actor in an episode called "The Window." He played a television director. When the show ended, Medford made a natural progression to "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," another anthology series with a focus on the macabre. This led to a stint on "Suspicion," a show that often focused on fear, suspicion, and murder. While Medford would continue to work in the horror and sci-fi genres throughout his career, including several episodes of "The Twilight Zone," he began to build a steady reputation for his dramatic narratives. He directed on western series like "The Rifleman," "The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters," and "Cimarron Strip." Francks also helmed a string of crime dramas, among them "The Untouchables," "Baretta," and "The Fugitive." It's little wonder that his first forays into film directing fell into these genre lines. In 1971, Medford helmed the western "The Hunting Party," and the crime thriller "The Organization." Neither film made much of an impact, so Medford continued in television, until he retired in 1990.
