Kevin Bray

Succession

Old Spice - Stop the Car

Insecure - Getting Ready

Black-ish "Summer"

From cops to corporate raiders, imploding morning show hosts to families defining themselves and their race, Kevin creatively travels between so many different characters, shows, films and commercials, while imbuing each work with the same multi-dimensionalism and stylistic nuance.

Starting in music videos after graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Kevin worked with artists that included Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Anita Baker, Luther Vandross, Brandy, Jessica Simpson, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston. 

Kevin’s feature films have been opportunities for collaboration with top-tier talent like Dwayne Johnson for Walking Tall, and directing culturally-resonate, influential work like All About the Benjamins. 

In television, Kevin has helped shape the dysfunctional families of Showtime’s Shameless, ABC’s four-time Emmy Award nominated Black-ish, HBO’s Succession and the fractured professional families of FX’s The Americans and Apple TV+’s The Morning Show. 

Kevin’s extensive television directing credits include Insecure, Snowfall, Run, Dear White People, Grown-ish, How to Get Away with Murder, Empire, The Killing and the upcoming FX limited series The Patient, about a psychotherapist who finds himself held by a serial killer with an unusual request: curb his homicidal urges, starring Steve Carell and Domhnall Gleeson. 

Kevin has directed a number of highly-anticipated upcoming series, which include the complex comedy Unprisoned, starring Kerry Washington as a single mother and therapist reunited with her previously incarcerated father, Delroy Lindo, for Hulu; Loot, a new workplace comedy and re-coming-of-age story, starring Emmy Award winner Maya Rudolph for Apple TV+; Florida Man a new comedic crime thriller for Netflix, and the irreverent rap-to-riches dramedy Rap Sh!t, from Emmy Award nominated executive producer Issa Rae, for HBO Max. Kevin’s latest project, the upcoming FX limited series The Sterling Affairs, which he is directing and executive producing, stars Emmy Award nominated Ed O’Neal as disgraced former L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, whose life and career implodes while his team ascends toward seizing a championship, led by coach Doc River, played by Emmy Award winner Laurence Fishburne.

Kevin continues to lead by example with his own success and championing more inclusive stories, characters and working positions in an evolving industry, celebrating and fostering diversity. Kevin’s long resume as a commercial director has placed him behind the camera of campaigns for Nike, Puma, Verizon, Gap and Old Spice.
