A British-born director and producer with a largely American resume, Tony Wharmby got his start in 1968, directing episodes of the long-running English soap opera "Coronation Street." Over the next decade, he would become one the U.K.'s busiest directors--between '68 and '86, Wharmby directed and/or produced the shows "Hadleigh," "New Scotland Yard," and "Bouquet of Barbed Wire," as well as the TV movies "Why Didn't They Ask Evans?" and "The Seven Dials Mystery." He was also a writer, producer, and director of the U.K. export series "Dempsey and Makepeace," and the crime drama led to work on the American shows "Magnum, P.I.," "The Equalizer," and "Miami Vice." He was soon in demand in the United States, and, after a series of TV movies, including "Sorry, Wrong Number" and "The Rockford Files: Godfather Knows Best," Wharmby began helming episodes of the shows "JAG," "Providence" and "The X-Files," on which he was also briefly a producer. Wharmby has also directed episodes of "Crossing Jordan," "Without a Trace," and "The O.C.." In '06, Wharmby became a co-executive producer, and occasional director, on the Fox crime series "Bones," and has contributed to numerous episodes of "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service," "Gossip Girl," and the '08 reboot of the teen drama "90210." Wharmby's daughter-in-law is the British film and television composer Debbie Wiseman.
