This stage director began his professional career with the Negro Ensemble Company in the mid-1960s and graduated to Broadway in 1969 with the play "Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?", starring Al Pacino, Hal Holbrook and Lauren Jones (whom Schultz later married). After receiving attention for the 1972 PBS special, "To Be Young, Gifted and Black", Schultz entered features with "Together for a Day" (1972) and split his time between TV and features. On the big screen, he helmed the spirited look at black inner-city youth, "Cooley High" (1975) and went on to engineer a number of up-beat entertainments, notably "Car Wash" (1976), the Richard Pryor vehicles "Greased Lightning" (1977) and "Bustin' Loose" (1983), the rap musical "Krush Groove" (1985) and the farcical "Livin' Large" (1991). More recently, Schultz has concentrated on helming TV episodics like "Picket Fences", "Chicago Hope" and "The Practice", all produced by David E Kelley, and "Touched By an Angel" and its spin-off "Promised Land". He also oversaw two entries in The Family Channel young Indiana Jones TV-movies, the charming "The Young Indiana Jones and the Hollywood Follies" (1994) and "The Young Indiana Jones and Travels with Father" (1996).
