A veteran television director, Howard Storm has been a decades-strong mainstay in the ever-changing sitcom landscape. In the 1970s, Storm became closely associated with influential TV pioneer James L. Brooks, helming episodes of classic shows such as the sitcoms "Rhoda" and "Taxi". A 59-episode run on the girl-meets-alien series "Mork & Mindy" took Storm into the high-concept-minded '80s, a decade in which the director oversaw installments of such zany sitcoms as the short-lived "Mr. Merlin" and the pop-culture phenomenon "ALF". As the '90s rolled in, Storm became a prominent force behind ABC's TGIF programming and similar fare from other networks, putting his directorial stamp on episodes of the family comedy "Full House", the schoolroom comedy "Head of the Class", and the sitcom "Major Dad". He later became even more notable for directing several episodes of the popular sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond". In addition to working with (and, in some cases, helping to launch the careers of) such icons as Robin Williams, Christopher Lloyd, Valerie Harper, and Redd Foxx, the director boasts a sole feature-film credit, the 1985 comedy "Once Bitten", which marks the mainstream (if little-seen) lead debut of future superstar Jim Carrey. Storm has written a handful of teleplays for such shows as the sitcoms "Happy Days" and "All in the Family". He occasionally appears in films such as Woody Allen's comedy "Broadway Danny Rose" (as himself) and Gary Marshall's romantic comedy "Valentine's Day".
