Biography

Douglas Hines worked as an editor on some of the most beloved television shows of their times, from the early days of the medium in the 1950s to its maturity in the '70s and into the '90s. His first job was working on the early television sitcom "Our Miss Brooks", starring Eve Arden as the wry, mocking math teacher Connie Brooks. The 1960s would be the busiest decade yet for Hines, who edited some of the top shows around--"Mister Ed" for its entire run, "The Beverly Hillbillies" for seven episodes, and "The Addams Family" for 16 shows. His later run on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" would earn Hines two Emmys for his editing skills. In addition to cutting such sitcoms as "Taxi" and "The Bob Newhart Show" into classic form, Hines became the go-to editor for nailing the intended feel of the many series spun-off from the seminal "Moore", working on "Rhoda", the short-lived "Phyllis", and the newsroom farce "Lou Grant" in quick succession. His decision to switch gears and work on the sketch format of "The Tracey Ullman Show" ultimately paid off, winning him another Emmy in 1988. Hines died on January 16, 2006.
