TOM SHADYAC (Director/Producer) began his directing career with Jim Carrey's breakout hit Ace Ventura: Pet Detective in 1994, and his films have since delighted millions with their winning combination of humor, heart and an ultimate belief in the human spirit. He followed Ace Ventura with the smash hit The Nutty Professor, which starred Eddie Murphy, then reteamed with Carrey and Grazer for the 1997 sensation Liar Liar. More recently, Shadyac directed Robin Williams in the Golden Globe-nominated Patch Adams, yet another big hit, this time successfully blending comedy and drama. He also executive-produced Murphy's popular return in Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, and directed Kevin Costner in the supernatural drama Dragonfly. Currently, he serves as executive producer on ABC's 8 Simple Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter.

Shadyac formed Shady Acres Entertainment, a production company based at Universal Pictures, which is currently developing several films in addition to television projects.

Shadyac moved to Los Angeles in 1983 after graduating from the University of Virginia. At age 23, he became the youngest staff joke writer for Bob Hope.
