      Brian Kirk first emerged as a directorial talent in his native country of Northern Ireland, helming such standout short films as the coming-of-age drama "Baby Doll" and the meditative crime story "Do Armed Robbers Have Love Affairs?" In 2004, his behind-the-camera prowess landed him a role as a regular director on the television series "Pulling Moves," a boys-will-be-boys dramedy about four morally lax buddies living in Belfast. Shortly after bringing his authentic eye for life in the U.K. to several episodes of the popular undercover-cop series "Murphy's Law," Kirk boarded Showtime's joint Irish-Canadian-American production of "The Tudors," a sensational historical drama detailing the political intrigue and sexual conquests of King Henry VIII. His successful pairing with the network prompted further directorial gigs on the twisty serial-killer thriller "Dexter" and the unlawful sibling drama "Brotherhood," two American series which benefitted from Kirk's tight focus on criminal-familial dynamics. While Kirk continues to explore similar themes stateside, serving as a director on such series as Martin Scorsese's Prohibition-era saga "Boardwalk Empire," he regularly returns to the U.K., where he helmed the 2009 crime-thriller miniseries "Father & Son" and made his feature-film debut with the brotherly battle-of-wills drama "Middletown."
