MALCOLM D. LEE, p.g.a. (Directed by/Produced by) has been making films since the age of 12-in animation, video and Super 8 film formats. He has been working professionally in the industry since the age of 17 as a production assistant, apprentice film editor, casting associate, assistant director and director's assistant.

After completing his undergraduate studies at Georgetown University in 1992 with a bachelor's degree in English, Lee, who minored in fine arts, accepted a yearlong fellowship in screenwriting from Walt Disney Studios. Following his early Hollywood experience, he honed his craft as a director and writer at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, and later made the award-winning short film Morningside Prep.

Lee made his directorial debut with his sixth screenplay The Best Man, which opened to raves from critics and audiences alike and scored a No.1 ranking at the box office in October 1999. He then directed the action-comedy Undercover Brother, which starred Eddie Griffin, Dave Chappelle and Neil Patrick Harris in May 2002 and again earned stellar reviews. His third feature, Roll Bounce, debuted in September 2005.

The director's critically acclaimed films Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins (with Martin Lawrence) and Soul Men (with Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac) both opened in 2008. He scored his biggest box-office hit to date with the sequel to his first film in November 2013 when The Best Man Holiday grossed $30.5 million in its opening weekend alone.

Among his upcoming feature projects is the next installment of the popular Best Man franchise, The Best Man Wedding, which he will write and direct. Additionally, he will serve as director and executive producer on a currently untitled FOX television family sitcom pilot about a former National Football League lineman who's struggling with the challenges of fatherhood.
