Some people fall into the director's chair by accident, while others seem destined for the position. Peter O'Fallon slots into the latter category. He began his career directing TV commercials, and received enough notice to attract the attention of Hollywood. He made the leap into episodic TV by directing two episodes of the seminal yuppie drama "thirtysomething." From there, the apparently tireless O'Fallon spent decades shooting episodes of some of the most well known shows of the 1990s and beyond, including the Alaska-set dramedy "Northern Exposure" (1990), the family drama "Party of Five" (1994-1995), and the procedural "House" (episodes from 2004 to 2007). The prolific director also worked as a producer and executive producer. The most long-lived of these assignments was "Mysterious Ways," a supernatural whodunit he created that ran from 2000 to 2002. O'Fallon also served as executive producer and director for "The Riches," a 2007-08 series about a family of con artists, and for the short-lived police drama "The Unusuals" (2009). Although he seems generally comfortable working in TV, O'Fallon also dabbled in big-screen productions. His feature debut was "Suicide Kings" (1997), a dark crime drama starring Christopher Walken that has became a cult favorite. Several years later, he occupied the director's chair for "A Rumor of Angels" (2000), about a young boy trying to cope with the death of his mother.
