Biography

Richard Michaels is a prolific television director who contributed significantly to the sitcom "Bewitched. " Starting out as a script supervisor, Michaels worked on 1950s shows such as "Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok," "Highway Patrol," and "Sea Hunt," and, later, "Peyton Place" and "Bewitched." In '68, Michaels began directing the latter show, helming more than 50 episodes of the popular magical comedy over the course of five years. After "Bewitched" ended in '72, Michaels went on to direct episodes of the hit family sitcom "The Brady Bunch" and later helmed installments of the cop series "Delvecchio." During the '80s and '90s, Michaels specialized in TV movies, including "The Children That Nobody Wanted" (starring a young Michelle Pfeiffer), "Sadat" (featuring Louis Gossett Jr. in the title role), and "A Triumph of the Heart: The Ricky Bell Story" (featuring Mario Van Peebles). With more than 45 directorial credits under his belt, Michaels retired in the mid-'90s.
