Donna Deitch is a director and producer with more than 25 years of experience in the entertainment industry. Her landmark lesbian love story Desert Hearts (1986) was a hit at the Telluride, Toronto and Sundance film festivals. Desert Hearts made an impression on Oprah Winfrey, too, and she subsequently hired Deitch to direct her first TV movie, the Emmy-nominated ABC miniseries The Women of Brewster Place. Many other TV directing credits followed, including five network pilots and numerous cable and network films such as HBO’s Prison Stories: Women on the Inside; ABC’s sexual harassment-themed Sexual Advances; and Showtime’s gay/lesbian-themed Common Ground and Holocaust-themed The Devil’s Arithmetic, for which Deitch received an Outstanding Directing Emmy Award. She has also directed many hours of episodic television drama including numerous episodes of NYPD Blue, ER, Heroes, Law and Order: SVU, Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy, Judging Amy and A Gifted Man, among others.
