Lowest Rated: 60% Bustin' Loose (1981)

Birthday: Sep 16, 1949

Birthplace: Hampton, Virginia, USA

Logically speaking, an NYU grad who follows work in the D.C. theater world with a directorial debut on a 1981 Richard Pryor vehicle, as Oz Scott did with "Bustin' Loose," would seem fated for a long feature film career. But in Scott's case, things detoured quickly and very successfully to the small screen. Following episodes of the "All in the Family" continuation "Archie Bunker's Place," the nouveau riche African American comedy "The Jeffersons," and a comedy following the lives of a diner staff in "Alice," Scott kept on rolling with one series stint after another. He eventually graduated to one-hour dramas like hospital staff drama "Chicago Hope," the defense attorney drama "The Practice," and the Washington, D.C. crime series "The District," for which he also worked as a Supervising Producer. He has had a measure of success in the TV movie genre, most notably with the 2002 VH1 entry "Play'd: A Hip Hop Story" and the 2003 Disney Channel offering "The Cheetah Girls." Long before he stepped into the TV and film arena, Scott earned a 1977 Drama Desk nomination for his direction of the off-Broadway play "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Is Enuff."
