Paris Barclay

(Author / Composer) Most recently, Paris was nominated for the both the Emmy Award and the Directors Guild of America Award for directing two different episodes of The West Wing. Paris won two consecutive Emmys in 1998 & 1999 for directing ABC's NYPD Blue, along with two other nominations for producing the series. For NYPD Blue, Paris also received the DGA Award for Best Director for a Dramatic Series, the Humanitas Award, an Alma Award, and 1999's Television Director of the Year Award from the Caucus of Producers, Writers and Directors, along with a Golden Globe nomination. In 2000, Paris co-created, co-executive produced, wrote, and directed the primetime drama City of Angels, nominated for five NAACP Image Awards and winning three, including Best Dramatic Series. His two-hour movie for TNT entitled The Big Time recently aired, revolving around the trials and tribulations of a struggling television network in 1948 and starring Molly Ringwald, Christopher Lloyd, and Dylan Baker.

Paris also directed the HBO western The Cherokee Kid, starring Sinbad, James Coburn and Burt Reynolds. In addition, Paris has directed episodes of NBC’s ER, ABC's Clueless, Second Noah, Extreme, and Moon Over Miami; CBS's Brooklyn South, Diagnosis: Murder, and Angel Street; and Fox's Fastlane and Sliders. Don't Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice In the Hood (1996) marked his feature film debut -- a wild parody of "'hood" movies for Miramax.

Paris graduated from Harvard College in 1979 with a degree in English and American Literature and Language. At Harvard, Paris wrote 13 musicals, revues and plays including the score for two Hasty Pudding Shows.

After graduation, he studied with Stephen Sondheim and Charles Strouse in the ASCAP Musical Theater Workshop, and two of his works were produced Off –Broadway: On Hold With Music (starring Jason Alexander in 1984) and Almos’ A Man (1985) at Soho Rep.

Paris has once again returned to the world of musical theater -- writing the book, music and lyrics for One Red Flower: Letters From 'Nam, chosen for the inaugural ASCAP/ Disney/Kennedy Center "In The Works" program. It had its World Premiere at the North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly Massachusetts in September of 2001.

Apart from his work in the media, Paris has received numerous accolades for his political and charitable work, including the Founder’s Award from Project Angel Food, and the Stephen F. Kolzak Award from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

Paris would like to personally thank Christopher Mason and Ronnie Barclay, whose love has sustained him through this 16-year process.
