STEVE MINER (Director) is a key figure in the history of the modern thriller, but has also worked in a wide range of other genres. That diversity is reflected in his activities over the past two years: After producing and directing the pilot and first-season episodes of the hit television series "Dawson's Creek," Miner directed the successful thriller Halloween: H20. He also recently directed the pilot of Kevin Williamson's new ABC series "Wasteland," debuting this fall, and is currently directing Texas Rangers, a period western starring James Van Der Beek and Dylan McDermott.

Miner began his career as an independent film director, and helped launch one of the most popular movie franchises, the Friday the 13th series (He went on to direct the second and third chapters in the series, the latter in 3-D). In addition, Miner also directed House, which was New World Pictures' top-grossing film of all time.

Miner went on to direct major non-thriller films such as Forever Young, a romantic fantasy starring Mel Gibson and Jamie Lee Curtis; My Father the Hero, a comedy with French star Gerard Depardieu; and the family film Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken. At the same time, Miner carved out a prestigious career as a director of television pilots, beginning with the acclaimed series "The Wonder Years," which earned three Emmy nominations and a DGA Award for Best Comedy Direction for Miner.

Miner also directed key episodes of "Chicago Hope" and "The Practice," which marked the beginning of his professional relationship with the series' creator/executive producer (and LAKE PLACID writer/producer), David E. Kelley.
