A leading TV writer, producer and director who segued to feature directing with "Jack the Bear" (1993), Marshall Herskovitz began his career as a writer on the TV series "Family," "The White Shadow" and "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers." He went on to collaborate with fellow AFI alumnus Edward Zwick on "Special Bulletin" (NBC, 1983), a critically-esteemed, TV-movie about nuclear terrorism which garnered him his first two Emmy awards. In 1985, Herskovitz and Zwick formed the Bedford Falls Company. Their first project under the banner was the polished yuppie-angst drama "thirtysomething" (ABC, 1987-91). The two subsequent series produced by the Bedford Falls Company, My So-Called Life" (ABC, 1994-95) and "Relativity" (ABC, 1996-97), both received critical kudos and found a fiercely loyal, albeit small, audience. Herskovitz returned to the big screen with the period romance "Dangerous Beauty" (1998), starring Catherine McCormack and Rufus Sewell.
