Seth Gordon

Very few documentary filmmakers make the leap to successfully helming big-screen features, but Seth Gordon was an exception. After making his debut as a director with the acclaimed videogame documentary "The King Of Kong" (2007), Gordon went on to direct some of the most commercially successful comedies of his era, including the massive hit "Horrible Bosses" (2011). Gordon was also much in demand as a comedy director on television, working on shows such as "The Office" (NBC 2005-13) and "Parks & Recreation" (NBC 2009- ), but his beginnings as a documentarian allied with a keen sense of social justice meant that he continued to work on smaller-scale non-fiction projects.
