Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

Frederick Toye made the move into television directing after working for five years as a production assistant and a decade as an editor. This background in the editing room gave him a solid sense of how to tell a clear story, which helped considerably in his work on such convoluted series as "Chuck" (NBC 2007-12) and "Fringe" (Fox 2008-13). Los Angeles native Toye, who is often credited under the names Fred Toye and Frederick E.O. Toye, got his first screen credit working as a production assistant on Billy Crystal's 1989 HBO special "Midnight Train to Moscow," before moving into visual effects on films like "The Addams Family" (1991) and then working as an assistant editor on hit films such as "Forrest Gump" (1994) and "Men in Black" (1997). After joining J.J. Abrams' spy fantasy "Alias" (ABC 2001-06) as editor, Toye directed his first TV episode for the series in 2005, becoming a co-producer the same year. Toye then worked as a director on popular series including the Jennifer Love Hewitt fantasy "Ghost Whisperer" (CBS 2005-10), espionage action-comedy "Chuck," cop drama reboot "Hawaii Five-0" (CBS 2010- ), mysterious procedural drama "Person of Interest (CBS 2011-16) and courtroom drama "The Good Wife" (CBS 2009-16). His connection with Abrams led to producing and directing roles on another of the prolific producer's TV projects, the twisty science-fiction drama "Fringe."
