HUGH WILSON (Director/Writer/Executive Producer) has won many awards for his creative script writing and much praise for his ability to translate his words into pictures on the screen. He recently wrote and directed Blast from the Past starring Brendan Fraser, Alicia Silverstone, Christopher Walken and Sissy Spacek, and served as both writer and director of Guarding Tess, starring Nicholas Cage and Shirley MacLaine. Wilson's first movie was the low-budget, hugely-successful surprise Police Academy which he co-wrote and directed. He also wrote and directed Rustler's Rhapsody.
Wilson directed the highly-successful The First Wives Club, starring Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton-a film which grossed over $100,000,000 worldwide. Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Wilson graduated from the University of Florida, and soon distinguished himself as the creator of the critically-acclaimed television series WKRP in Cincinnati and the Emmy-winning Frank's Place. He won the 1988 Emmy for best comedy writing and has twice been awarded the Humanitas Award for television writing.
Wilson is the father of five, and lives in Virginia.
