From her sharp and satirical independent films to her prestigious work in mainstream television, Jamie’s original voice, intuitive sense of timing and distinct point of view imprints every episode and movie she makes.
Much like the characters featured in so many of her shows and films, Jamie marches to the beat of her own drum, happily pushing up against the establishment with her iconoclastic comedy and formula-averse approach to storytelling. After starting as an intern for Martin Scorsese, and script supervisor alongside David Fincher, Jamie’s directing career took off with But I’m a Cheerleader, premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, announcing a fresh comedic voice representing the LGBTQ+ community with a sophisticated style.
As an executive producer and director, Jamie has shepherded existing shows while simultaneously infusing her own unique sensibilities into both established, and new series, such as It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Nora From Queens, Silicon Valley, Girls, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Russian Doll, along with the hit Hulu series Only Murders in the Building, starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, and the Amazon series A League of their Own.
Jaime recently completed directing the upcoming series My Lady Jane, adapted from The New York Times bestselling novel, a one-hour comedic alternate history fantasy produced for Amazon Prime. Alongside her work in television, Jamie has continued directing feature films, which include The Quiet, Breaking the Girls, Addicted to Fresno and The Stand-In.
Jamie’s ability to generate hilarious and authentic chemistry across every movie and television series she directs comes from the trust she puts in her collaborators’ instincts, providing her cast the creative freedom to collectively find the perfect rhythm and tone.
Jamie’s expansion into commercials and branded content has allowed her to stretch her storytelling, humor and visual style even further. In her campaign for Audible, Jamie needed only 45 seconds to tell a full story about family, identity and acceptance worthy of a feature film. And in her Super Bowl spot for Olay, featuring Busy Philipps, Lilly Singh, Taraji P. Henson and Katie Couric, Jamie continues to elevate women in her work, this time literally into outer space.
