Veteran TV director Steve Zuckerman has a list of credits that includes some of the biggest shows of the 1990s and 2000s. Most notable of course was his long tenure on the sitcom "Empty Nest", for which he directed over 100 episodes. The show follows a widowed pediatrician (Richard Mulligan) whose two adult daughters (Dinah Manoff, Kristy McNichol) move back home to support their aggrieved father. It was heavy material for a comedy and Zuckerman was often lauded for his understated handling of the material. After the show ended its run in 1995, Zuckerman filled out the rest of the decade directing episodes of "Friends", "Suddenly Susan", "Murphy Brown", "The Drew Carey Show", and "Everybody Loves Raymond". Few sitcoms, it seems, can escape Zuckerman's overseeing of at least one or two episodes. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, Zuckerman also works frequently as a director of New York and regional theater productions.
