Andy Ackerman (born Robert Andrew Ackerman in 1957) is one of the many bright minds that helped make "Seinfeld" the classic sitcom it became. A graduate of Santa Clara University, Ackerman started out his entertainment career as a production coordinator and editor. He was a key editor for the television series"WKRP in Cincinnati" in 1982. He held the same position for the 1980s classic "Newhart." In the early 1990s, Ackerman started to direct some of the hottest sitcoms on TV at the time. His credits included "Frasier," "Wings," and "Cheers." He started directing episodes of "Seinfeld" in 1994 and went on to direct 89 episodes. Ackerman would also go on to direct Ted Danson in CBS' successful, acerbic sitcom "Becker," which lasted until 2003. He remained close with almost all the major contributing artists from "Seinfeld," including the show's co-creator, Larry David, whom he directed in HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm." He also directed another "Seinfeld" alum, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, in her sitcom, "The New Adventures of Old Christine." Ackerman has won three Emmys as well as two Directors Guild of America Awards. He has been nominated for almost a dozen more Emmy Awards.
