Bryan Spicer

Bryan Spicer made his feature film directorial debut in 1995 with the highly-successful Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, which was released by Twentieth Century Fox. An audience favorite and a boxoffice success, the film brought Spicer critical acclaim for his inventive approach to its high voltage action sequences. His second film, Universal's McHale's Navy, reflected Spicer's first collaboration with The Bubble Factory and his personal mentor, Sid Sheinberg, and capitalized on the young director's talent for working within an intricate comedic action-adventure context.

Spicer began his film industry career working as a production assistant to producer Jay Daniel and director Glen Gordon Caron, for whom he worked on the production of the pilot for the successful television series Moonlighting. Spicer then worked for several years in the insert department at the Stephen J. Cannell Company, which produced such series as Wise Guy, The A-Team, 21 Jump Street, Stingray and Booker, on which he made his directorial debut.

Spicer began to draw serious industry attention when he became both a director and producer for the trend-setting television series Parker Lewis Can't Lose!, which ran for three seasons on the Fox network. Several top film industry directors and producers, including Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis, Ivan Reitman and Robert DeNiro, took notice of the way Spicer consistently brought a cinematic scope and style to the medium of television.

The director subsequently delivered a visually stunning two-hour season premiere of the hit underwater adventure series, SeaQuest DSV, which was produced by Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment.

Spicer's wide-ranging work in television includes the innovative pilot for the Western series The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. and the Emmy winning anthology series, Tribeca, which was produced by Robert DeNiro's production company and starred Kevin Spacey. Spicer also directed the pilot for a comedy series from Ivan Reitman called The First Gentleman as well as Johnny Bago, which was executive produced by Robert Zemeckis and Frank Marshall.
