Harry Longstreet was a triple-threat producer, writer, and director who worked primarily from the late 1970s through the late 1990s. Working almost exclusively in television, Longstreet got his start writing for TV series and made for television movies. On the short-lived science fiction adventure series "Voyagers!", he made the jump to producer while also penning several episodes. Further brief writing and/or production gigs would come his way before he got the longest-tenured job of his career: the television adaptation of the hit film "Fame". Not only did he serve as an executive producer for the show from 1986 through 1987 (for 24 episodes total), he also wrote for the series, and earned his first directorial credit for a pair of episodes. In 1990, Longstreet was nominated for a Humanitas Prize for his work on an episode of "CBS Schoolbreak Special" entitled "Frog Girl: The Jenifer Graham Story." During this era, Longstreet also worked on such renowned fantasy programs as the fantasy/police drama hybrid "Alien Nation" and "The X-Files". His last credit was as writer for the 1997 TV movie "Alien Nation: The Udara Legacy".
