This Emmy-winning TV producer-director ("Hill Street Blues") has also had considerable experience helming TV commercials and series ("St. Elsewhere", "Miami Vice") and subsequently feature films. Anspaugh began shooting 16mm sports films while at The University of Indiana before attending USC's School of Film and Television. After four years teaching high school in Colorado, he started his TV career as associate producer on the ABC movies "Vampire" (1979) and "Fighting Back" (1980), both produced by MTM. He went on to become associate producer on that company's acclaimed cop show "Hill Street Blues" (NBC) in 1981; by the time he left the show in 1985, Anspaugh had worked his way up to producer and director, winning producing Emmys in 1982 and 1983. Anspaugh returned to directing with episodes of "St. Elsewhere" and "Miami Vice", and the TV-movies "The Last Leaf" (syndicated, 1984), "Deadly Care" (CBS, 1987) and "In the Company of Darkness" (CBS, 1993).
