Norman Buckley is an acclaimed TV director and editor who came to prominence in the early 2000s for his work on the action-packed spy comedy "Chuck," the lavish teen soap "Gossip Girl," and the major hit "The O.C.." Despite being urged to follow in the footsteps of his civil engineer father, he pursued a film degree at the University of Southern California. He aspired to become a screenwriter, but he discovered an instinctual affinity for film editing, and with help from his older sister, Broadway legend Betty Buckley, landed his first job as second assistant editor on the 1983 drama "Tender Mercies." Buckley continued to work on film projects throughout the '80s and '90s, but later became primarily known for TV work. After paying his dues as an editor for nearly two decades, in 2005 Buckley made his directorial debut on the hit teen drama series "The O.C.," and later directed episodes of the hit shows "Gossip Girl" and "Chuck," both of which are co-produced by "The O.C." creator Josh Schwartz. Buckley earned a coveted Eddie (American Cinema Editors) award in 2008 for his work on the latter series.
