Life and career

In 1979, Holcomb directed the television film Captain America.[1] In 1994, he directed pilot episode of ER, for which he was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award and won a Directors Guild of America Award.[2] In 1996, he directed the episode "Last Call" and was nominated for another Primetime Emmy.[3] He returned to the show in 2009 to direct its final episode and received a Primetime Emmy for doing so.[2]

In 1997, Holcomb was announced as the director of a Showtime miniseries titled Dying for Our Country.[4] It aired the next year under the title Thanks of a Grateful Nation.[5] In 2001, he directed the pilot episode of The Education of Max Bickford, and served as executive producer for the overall show.[6]

Directing style

On his role as a guest director, Holcomb stated:

I generally go in with a clear understanding that the actors have a responsibility to the series [...] They own those roles. They own those characters. My responsibility is to help them become the best actors they can be within those parameters. You’re trying to continue the prosperity and success of that series as well as being an artist.[9]

Unreleased works

In 1997, Holcomb was announced as the director of an adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke's novel A Fall of Moondust.[10] In 1999, he was hired to direct a WWII drama pilot titled Skylark.[11]
