Biography

India native Babu Subramaniam has enjoyed a long and varied career as an assistant director, and he's also capable of sliding into the director's chair when the opportunity arrives. Educated at Bombay's S.I.E.S. College, Subramaniam initially found work in that city's developing film scene, working on several films with director Mahesh Bhatt. Fresh from his success in India, he journeyed to Italy, where he worked for Rizzoli Films. Eventually, Subramaniam's travels took him to New York City, where he studied film at the renowned New School--and this time, he stayed for a while. His first major project in the United States came as second assistant director on the Golden Globe-winning police drama "Hill Street Blues"; he joined the show in 1986, working on the final 14 episodes. Throughout the 1980s, Subramaniam focused on TV work, including a 17-episode stint on the acclaimed sci-fi adventure "Star Trek: The Next Generation." In the '90s, he worked on a variety of forgettable TV movies, but most of his quality gigs were of the big screen variety--he served as both a first and second assistant director on films like the Kathy Bates-starring bio-drama "A Home of Our Own" and the romantic drama "Untamed Heart." His biggest breakthrough, however, came in 1994, signing on as an assistant director with the long-lasting medical drama "ER." He served as first assistant director on 98 total episodes, also directing three himself. That TV experience helped him land tenures on a variety of other shows, including the crime-comedy "Memphis Beat."
