Lev L. Spiro has directed over 140 episodes, pilots and features for television, including such Emmy Award winning series as Modern Family, Weeds, My Name Is Earl, Ugly Betty, The O.C., Gilmore Girls, Dawson’s Creek, and Arrested Development. Lev’s specific shows have won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Children’s Program (“Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie”), a DGA Nomination for Outstanding Directorial Achievement (“Minutemen”), a GLAAD Award for Outstanding TV Episode of the Year (“Popular”) and many more.
Pilots picked up to series include the hour long “Jane By Design” and “Summerland”, and the half hour comedies “Do Over”, “JONAS”, and “The Jersey”. In addition to the “Wizards” and “Minutemen” movies, Lev directed the hit dvd film “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3” for Disney.
Currently, Lev is directing episodes of the new darkly comedic one-hour series Un-Real, then travelling to Charleston, South Carolina to direct the comedy feature Blue Mountain State for Lionsgate. He is sorely missed by his dog Zuma, and sometimes missed by his wife, Producer/Writer Melissa Rosenberg.
