A pioneer who first broke with convention by co-scripting "Private Benjamin" (1980), a rare comedy centered on female characters, Nancy Meyers spent nearly two decades sharing writing and producing credit on successful big screen comedies before breaking out on her own as one of Hollywood's top women filmmakers. During her rise, Meyers' collaborated with then-husband Charles Shyer on comedy hits including "Baby Boom" (1987) and "Father of the Bride" (1991), but following her directorial debut with "The Parent Trap" (1998), she established a unique voice with hugely popular romantic comedies aimed at oft-overlooked middle-aged moviegoers. In films "What Women Want" (2000), "Something's Got to Give" (2003) and "It's Complicated" (2009), Meyers painted a new portrait of the modern, romantic comedy heroine as a mature, self-sufficient, class act who is perfectly capable of "having it all."
