Biography

The son of British-born screenwriter Ian McLellan Hunter, writer-director Tim Hunter made his mark in the movies before moving into television. A graduate of Harvard University, his first screen credit was as writer of the cult film "Over the Edge", a youth-oriented crime drama featuring Matt Dillon in his first film. He would work with Dillon again for his directorial debut, an adaptation of youth author S.E. Hinton's coming-of-age drama "Tex", a film he also co-wrote. The film was well received, and he gained further accolades for the dark teen drama "River's Edge" in 1986, winning an Independent Spirit Award and a Grand Jury Prize nomination at Sundance. Hunter directed several episodes of the quirky David Lynch series "Twin Peaks" and the police procedural "Homicide: Life on the Street" in the '90s. In 1993, he helmed "The Saint of Fort Washington", a drama about homelessness starring Danny Glover and Hunter's regular collaborator, Matt Dillon. Subsequently, Hunter has worked primarily on the small screen and many of the shows he has worked on reflected his interest in macabre subject matters, including the crime drama "Cold Case" and the serial killer mystery series "Dexter". In 2007, Hunter began working on the hit period drama "Mad Men", and he has since directed episodes of other hit shows, including "Glee" and "Nip/Tuck".
