Mini Bio (1)
In the past year Chris Long has won a Golden Globe, Producers Guild Award, AFI award, TCA Award and Critics Choice Award and been nominated for an Emmy and DGA Award, all for the final season of The Americans. He was lead Director and Executive Producer on the series that has just concluded its critically successful run on FX.
He is currently Executive Producer/ Director on Steven Spielberg's new anthology series for Apple, Amazing Stories.
Having directed over 100 projects across multiple genres and produced many hundreds of hours of television, Long has carved out a well-earned reputation as one of the best Television Directors and Producers in Hollywood and a creative visionary for some of it's most successful shows.
Born and raised in London, England, he started working in the music business as a Sound Engineer for recording studios and eventually Post Production at Molinare Studios in Soho, which was his introduction to the world of television.
After moving to the U.S. he began working in Post Production on various TV shows, including Midnight Caller (nominated for a Golden Reel Award), and quickly moved up the ranks to become a Director/Producer. His credits include top rated series such as: The Man in the High Castle, The Americans, Zoo, Dirt, Gilmore Girls, Weeds, Monk, Without a Trace, Supernatural, Smallville, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman, and The Mentalist (the most viewed drama in 2010 - worldwide).
His success landed him an overall deal at Warner Bros TV in 2014 and his own production company, Scallie filmworks Inc, which he runs with his wife, Erin Donovan.
Through Scallie filmworks they produced, directed and subsequently sold worldwide a documentary, which solved a 50-year-old cold case of one of the UK's most notorious crimes - A Tale of Two Thieves - The Great British Train Robbery, available on Netflix. They recently sold the premise as a drama to ITV in the UK. Additionally, they have numerous other projects in various stages of development.
Despite Long's successes and many awards, he takes huge pride in the diverse group of directors and producers he's mentored over the years, who have become talented and successful filmmakers in their own right.
