Biography

Nick Havinga began his prolific run as a television director in the early 1960s. He started directing episodes of the soap opera "Guiding Light" and the series "Camera Three", for which he earned an Emmy Award nomination in 1968, before moving on to a string of made-for-TV movies and documentaries in the mid-60s that included "Jack and the Beanstalk", "Pinocchio", "Aladdin", and "In Search for Ezra Pound". He began producing such television movies in the latter half of the 1960s and early 1970s before his career as a director took off in the 1980s. Havinga became a regular television director during the decade and put his stamp on several different types of series such as sticoms "The Facts of Life" and "Archie Bunker's Place", and primetime soap "Knots Landing". He never stuck with one series for too long as a director but would find consistent work with the hit series "Dallas" from 1983 to 1991. In 1987 he began directing episodes of the family-favorite show "ALF"; he directed more episodes of "ALF" than any other program in his career. Following his departure from "ALF" in 1990, Havinga began directing episodes for a similar show: "Harry and the Hendersons" in 1991. His last credit as a director came in 1996 when he worked on one episode of the feel-good family program "7th Heaven".
