Lee burst onto the Hollywood scene when his critically acclaimed first feature film, THE BEST MAN, which Lee wrote and directed, opened as the #1 film in America at the box office during it’s opening weekend in October of 1999. The Universal Pictures release became an instant classic and opened the door in Hollywood for a series of other films in the romantic/comedy genre to emulate. Lee went on to direct the cult classic hit UNDERCOVER BROTHER (2002) for Universal Pictures starring Eddie Griffin and Dave Chappelle. And in 2005, Lee directed Fox Searchlight’s ROLL BOUNCE, an endearing coming of age story starring Bow Wow and Meagan Good, for which Lee received an NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Direction. In 2008, Lee executive produced, wrote and directed Universal Pictures’ WELCOME HOME ROSCOE JENKINS starring Martin Lawrence and James Earl Jones and in the same year released Dimension Films’ SOUL MEN starring Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac. Lee directed SCARY MOVIE V, which will be released on April 12, 2013 by Dimension Films, and is currently in production on the sequel to his directorial debut entitled THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY. A Universal Pictures release, THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY is slated for release in November 2013. Malcolm D. Lee began making films at the age of 12 in animation, video and Super-8 film formats. A graduate of Georgetown University and New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, Lee debuted his short film MORNINGSIDE PREP on Showtime Networks in 1997, a film that went on to claim several awards including two from the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame. Lee resides in New York with his wife and three sons. David Zucker / Writer-producer With worldwide box office hits such as Airplane!, Ruthless People, The Naked Gun, Phone Booth, A Walk In the Clouds, and the record-breaking Scary Movie 3 and 4, all to his credit, director/writer/producer David Zucker has established himself as one of Hollywood’s most successful filmmakers. Every one of his 15 studio films having been profitable, David’s track record remains unparalleled in a highly competitive industry. Starting out after college with a borrowed video tape deck and camera, David recruited his brother Jerry, and friend Jim Abrahams to join him in creating the Kentucky Fried Theater, setting up shop in the back of a Madison, Wisconsin bookstore. Moving the show to Los Angeles in 1972, with their groundbreaking style of outrageous sketch comedy, they became the most successful small theater group in Los Angeles history. After parlaying this success into an iconic independent feature, Kentucky Fried Movie, David, Jim, and Jerry conceived the idea that would create a whole new film genre. Airplane! broke all conventions, featuring dramatic actors like Robert Stack and Leslie Nielsen performing harebrained dialogue with straight-laced sincerity. The spoof became the surprise hit of 1980, positioning David and his partners as kingpins of Hollywood comedy. Their streak of successful movies continued with the secret agent spoof Top Secret! starring Val Kilmer, and the biting farce Ruthless People, with Bette Midler and Danny DeVito, one of that year’s top-grossing films. In 1988, David went out on his own to direct The Naked Gun, a zany comedy that was a runaway hit. His 1991 Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear surpassed the original’s grosses, quickly followed by the third box-office winner, Naked Gun 33 1/3. David then produced A Walk in The Clouds (Keanu Reeves) and Phone Booth (Colin Farrell), which added to the list of hits, after which he directed the comedy classic BASEketball, featuring South Park's Trey Parker and Matt Stone. In 2003, David was tapped by Dimension Films to revitalize the Scary Movie comedy franchise, resulting in two more blockbusters, Scary Movie 3 and 4. Returning to producing, David turned out another hit, Superhero Movie, and then an independent feature, An American Carol. Currently, he is writing and producing Scary Movie V, to be released in April 2013. David resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Danielle, a physician, and their two children, Charles, 12, an attorney, and Sarah, 10, a dental hygienist.
