John Llewellyn Moxey is Argentinian director best known for his work on American television. A citizen of England, Moxey was born in Argentina where his father was working with the coal industry. Moxey knew at an early age he wished to be in the film business, and after serving in World War II he found work as an editor and second unit director. Moxey worked in British television and directed a couple of cult horror films starring Christopher Lee, "Horror Hotel" in 1960, and "Psycho-Circus" in 1966. In the late '60s he relocated to the United States and quickly found work on television crime shows, including the cop dramas "The Mod Squad," "N.Y.P.D.," and "Hawaii Five-O." Moxey also specialized in made-for-TV movies, with a special propensity for mystery and horror films. His 1972 made for TV thriller "The Night Stalker" introduced Darren McGavin's Kolchack character, who would go on to fight the supernatural in his own short-lived cult series. Moxey also directed "Genesis II," an ambitious sci-fi pilot from "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry, which never got picked up as a series. Moxey continued to work in episodic TV through the 80's and 90's, including the police drama "Miami Vice" and the action series "Magnum, P.I.." He retired from the business in 1991, after working as a regular director on the CBS mystery series"Murder, She Wrote."
