Steven Schachter
(Director / Screenwriter)

Writer/director Steven Schachter has directed numerous small-screen projects for HBO, TNT, USA Cable, Lifetime and various other networks. He and William H. Macy have become a well-established writing team and regularly wear the hats of writer/actor/director. Schachter's career began at Goddard College, where he studied with David Mamet. While there, he also met Macy, his now long-time associate. The three of them later went on to found The St. Nicholas Theater in Chicago, where Schachter served as Artistic Director, directing more than 20 productions and winning the Joseph Jefferson Award for Best Director. One project in particular, Mamet's The Water Engine, was brought to the Public Theatre and then moved on to Broadway. This made Schachter, at 24 years old, one of the youngest directors on Broadway. Schachter also directed regional theatre throughout the United States. He then directed The Water Engine for TNT and was nominated for the CableAce Award.

Schachter and Macy's work together includes the telefilms Above Suspicion; Every Woman's Dream; The Con; and TNT's A Slight Case of Murder, for which Macy earned an Emmy nomination for his performance. They are currently developing a television series, Put-in-Bay, about an island in Ohio.
