ALL ABOUT STEVE

PHIL TRAILL (Director) was born in New Jersey but moved to London, England, at age six. Fifteen years later, he graduated from Newcastle University with a First in English and Film Studies.

Traill started his career in TV, writing and directing for "The Big Breakfast,” a hugely popular British live entertainment show. He went on to produce and/or direct over a dozen shows for some of London's leading production companies, including Planet 24, Hat Trick, Mentorn and the BBC.

During this time, Traill wrote and directed four short films for Channel 4 and the BBC – "Hiccup,” "Flipped,” "Post” and "Dangle” – which won numerous awards at international festivals, and have all been sold to TV outlets around the world. In 2005, Traill co-wrote the feature film "Opal Dream,” directed by Peter Cattaneo (‘The Full Monty'), released in the U.S. in 2006 by Focus Features. Traill also directed the entire series of "Spoons,” a single-camera sketch comedy TV show for C4 in the UK, and BBC America.

In the summer of 2006, Traill moved to Los Angeles with his wife and daughter. Since then, he has created and written two television pilot scripts – one for Fox, through Ashton Kutcher's Katalyst Films; the other for NBC, with Chicago's famed improv troupe Second City. Traill also created and directed two online comedy shows for MSN, produced by Reveille (‘The Office,” "Ugly Betty”).
