As the son of a noted producer and network executive, Brad Silberling had a leg up on the competition by knowing the ins and outs of the entertainment industry before he embarked on his directing career. After getting his start as a production assistant on the CBS Schoolbreak Special "Little Miss Perfect" (1986), he began directing television shows like "L.A. Law" (NBC, 1986-1994), "Doogie Howser, M.D" (ABC, 1989-1993) and "Civil Wars" (ABC, 1991-93). He made a successful feature debut with "Casper" (1995), before returning to television for a four-year stint on "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005), where he met his wife, actress Amy Brenneman. Drawing from the personal tragedy of the murder of former-girlfriend and actress Rebecca Schaeffer by a deranged fan, he directed the moving independent drama, "Moonlight Mile" (2002), which demonstrated his ability to tackle emotionally complex material. Through it all, Silberling remained one of the more interesting filmmakers to watch.
