THE GAME PLAN

ANDY FICKMAN (Director) most recently guided the hit comedy "She's the Man” starring Amanda Bynes, which won the Teen Choice Award as Best Comedy. Certainly one of the busiest filmmakers working, he brings a wealth of experience creating, directing, writing and producing television, film and stage projects to his position on THE GAME PLAN. Born in Houston, he attended the University of Houston and Texas Tech University while performing in stand-up comedy while still a teenager. After graduation, he came to Los Angeles, where his first jobs included tour guide at Universal Studios and the mailroom at Triad Artists Agency. He also became a prolific writer and director for the local theater scene, eventually co-founding and managing the Fountainhead Theatre Company.

He moved into film development by working with companies run by Gene Wilder and Bette Midler before being named Vice President of Creative Affairs and Production for Middle Fork Productions, where he served as associate producer on the successful thriller "Anaconda.”

Meanwhile, his theatrical resume grew to include the hit plays "Jewtopia” and "Reefer Madness.” Both productions moved on to rave reviews and packed houses in New York City. He directed the acclaimed film version of "Reefer Madness” for Showtime (which also played the Sundance and Deauville Film Festivals among others) as well as the independent comedy "Who's Your Daddy,” starring Brandon Davis, Christine Lakin and Patsy Kensit.

Currently, he is working on a myriad of film and television productions that include projects for Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray's Mayhem Pictures, The Weinstein Company, Walt Disney Pictures, CBS, Twentieth Century Fox and Columbia Pictures among many others.
