STEVE MINER - Director Like H20's leading lady Jamie Lee Curtis, director Steve Miner comes to H20 with a background in terror. Breaking into features in the 70's as an independent director, Miner helped launch two of the screens most popular franchises: FRIDAY THE 13TH, which featured his directing debut in parts II and Ill in the series (the latter being in 3-D, and the most successful of the long-running series); and HOUSE, which spawned two sequels.

Miner switched gears by getting into comedy again with SOUL MAN. This lead to work producing and directing in television, specifically "The Wonder Years," where he directed the pilot and all the episodes of the first season (which earned three Emmy nominations and a DGA Award for Best Comedy Direction for Miner).

He then went on to direct the supernatural thriller WARLOCK and Disney's teen film WILD HEARTS CAN'T BE BROKEN. In 1992, he worked with Jamie Lee Curtis for the first time on FOREVER YOUNG, a romantic drama also starring Mel Gibson. He followed this success with MY FATHER THE HERO with Gerard Depardieu.

Miner continued to direct television including the pilot and first three episodes of "Elvis: Good Rockin' Tonight," where he first collaborated with H20 cinematographer Daryn Okata, the pilot of "Against The Grain," "Chicago Hope" where he first met Adam Arkin, and "The Practice." His most recent television success has been his work on the pilot and several key episodes of Kevin Williamson's "Dawson's Creek."

Miner has just begun filming his next feature, LAKE PLACID, a comic action-thriller written by David E. Kelley and starring Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda and Oliver Platt.
