separator

Paris BarclayEmmy Award winning TV producer-director of NYPD Blue and The West Wing.

Barclay also directed episodes of ER and Angel Street. He directed the Wayans film Don't Be A Menace to Society While Drinking Your Juice In the Hood, which he described in a Los Angeles Times article as a homophobic experience.

Other films to his credit include, The Cheroke Kid and America's Dream. Barclay has also directed on Broadway.

The Los Angeles Times article said of him: Barclay is still working with so-called "white" material - it's the reason people say, "Oh, really?" when you tell them that the guy who won an Emmy last year for directing ABC's "NYPD Blue&" is black. You get another "Oh, really?," the eyebrows arching a little higher, when you tell people he's gay, too.
