JAMES BOBIN (Director) is a British director and producer and one of the most inventive comedic writers in television. He created, wrote and executive-produced the hit series "Flight of the Conchords" for HBO and played a key role in making it one of Time magazine's top five new television series in 2007. The show garnered seven Emmy nominations, including outstanding comedy series. For his work on "Flight of the Conchords," Bobin received back-to-back nominations for outstanding directing and writing as well as a Writers Guild Award nomination.

In 2000, Bobin created, wrote and directed "Da Ali G Show" for Channel 4 in England and devised the show's iconic characterizations Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev and Bruno (all played by Sacha Baron Cohen).

In 2000, he wrote and directed "Thumb Candy," the first-ever documentary for Channel 4 in England about the history of video games.

Bobin currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Francesca, daughter, Madelaine, and son, Jack.
