Ted Demme

Ted Demme takes a new turn with Blow, a stylish, epic yet ultimately human look at the rise of the cocaine culture through the eyes of the man who brought the drug to America, only to lose everything.

Demme has always shown considerable versatility in the projects that he has directed and produced. Demme's directing credits include the black comedy The Ref starring Kevin Spacey, Denis Leary and Judy Davis; Beautiful Girls with Uma Thurman, Natalie Portman, Matt Dillon and Timothy Hutton; the critically-acclaimed Monument Ave. with Billy Crudup, Denis Leary, Famke Janssen, Ian Hart and Martin Sheen; and Life starring Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence.

Operating through Spanky Pictures, Demme has produced several films including Monument Ave., Rounders with Matt Damon, Edward Norton and John Malkovich; A Lesson Before Dying with Don Cheadle and Cicely Tyson for HBO which won both the Emmy and Peabody Award; and Tumbleweeds starring Academy Award-nominee Janet McTeer.
