      Raised in upstate New York, movie and TV director Sam Weisman studied acting and directing at Massachusetts' Brandeis University before getting his start as a television actor in the 1970s. After making appearances on series like "Eight is Enough" and "M*A*S*H," and feature films such as 1979's "Being There," Weisman got a chance to try his hand at directing in 1983 when he helmed an episode of the long-running sitcom "Family Ties." From there, he would go on to direct over 60 "Family Ties" episodes as well as racking up directing credits on popular series "Who's the Boss," "Moonlighting," and "L.A. Law," to name a few. In 1994, Weisman tackled directing a feature with the comedy sequel "D2: The Mighty Ducks," and for his sophomore effort he chose the divorce-themed comedy-drama "Bye Bye Love" in 1995. Weisman then directed three features in a row: the well-received "George of the Jungle" in 1997, the Steve Martin vehicle "The Out-of-Towners" in 1999, and the 2001 crime comedy "What's the Worst That Could Happen" with Martin Lawrence and Danny DeVito. Cementing his status as a top comedy director, Weisman next directed David Spade in 2003's "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star," following this success with an episode of "Monk" in 2007, and several installments of the mystery series "In Plain Sight" in 2008. Weisman has been married to former "Knots Landing" star Constance McCashin since 1978.
