Official Sex and the City Movie Director Michael Patrick King: Top Funny Romantic Movie Titles and Best Comedy Movies of 2008
Michael Patrick King (Producer)
Michael Patrick King (director/writer/producer) has received many accolades for his work as writer, director, and executive producer. For his work on HBO's Sex and the City, he has been honored by the Writers Guild, The Directors Guild, The Producers Guild, The Television Academy, and The Hollywood Foreign Press Association -- culminating in three Golden Globe awards for Best Comedy Series and two Emmy awards, one for Best Comedy Series and one for Best Director.
More recently, King created The Comeback with Lisa Kudrow, who also starred in the HBO series. King served as executive producer, writer, and director on The Comeback, receiving his most recent Emmy nomination for his directing work on the show. This black comedy about an actress' (Kudrow) desperate attempt to stay in the television spotlight lasted only one season on HBO -- but it is considered to be a cult comedy classic.
King began his television career working in network television -- as a writer/producer on two other classic TV programs: Will & Grace and Murphy Brown (for which he received his first Emmy nomination).
