An Academy Award winning director, David’s unique ability to capture – and define – the cultural moment through his timeless films, such as The Devil Wears Prada, has also shaped the landscape of prestige television with series such as Sex and the City, Entourage, Manifest and The Morning Show.
David’s trusted collaborations with his actors have not only helped create some of the most iconic characters, such as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada and Vinnie Chase in Entourage, but have also won his cast members high honors, such as the Golden Globe, SAG Award and numerous Emmy and Academy Award nominations. David’s work has always honored emotional truth, whether on the battlefield in HBO’s Band of Brothers, for which he won an Emmy Award for directing, or sealed inside a lunar module in From the Earth to the Moon. Most recently, David directed and executive produced the buzzy and binge-inducing Netflix limited series Inventing Anna, about the con artist Anna Sorokin, better known as Anna Delvey. David serves as director and executive producer for NBC’s new drama The Irrational starring Jesse L. Martin as a world-renowned behavioral science professor assisting high-stakes criminal cases, based on Dan Ariely’s bestselling novel Predictably Irrational.
David’s mastery of tone and genre effortlessly mixes comedy with drama, from the moving and melancholic Collateral Beauty, to the laugh-out-loud Marley & Me and The Big Year, to the serious but funny Hope Springs, to the light and romantic Miami Rhapsody, to the aspirational One Chance. David’s latest feature, Jerry and Marge Go Large, starring Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening, tells the unbelievable true story of a recently-retired couple who discover a mathematical loophole to continuously win the Massachusetts Lottery, transforming a game of chance into a second chance for themselves, their marriage and small town.
