Edwin Sherin is perhaps best known for his work as a theater and television director and producer. Sherin started his career in entertainment as an actor in minor roles on stage, including Broadway productions such as "A Desert Incident" and "Romulus." He went on to become resident director at Arena Stage, a not-for-profit regional theater based in Washington. The turning point in his career came in 1968 when he directed Jane Alexander (whom he married in 1975) and James Earl Jones in the Broadway play "The Great White Hope." Sherin's career at Arena Stage proved to be a fruitful one, as he went on to helm many stage productions, including "The Wall," "Macbeth" and "King Lear." He continued to direct Alexander in numerous plays, including "Hedda Gabler" in 1981. While he remained passionate about theater, Sherin began directing television shows in 1974, filming a televised production of "King Lear" that year. His most notable TV work was on the series "Law & Order" between 1991 and 2005, directing and producing numerous episodes. Other television series he has directed include crime dramas "Homicide: Life on the Street"--for which he received an Emmy nomination-- "L.A. Law," and the supernatural mystery show "Medium."
