Bicoastal integrated production studio Humble has added Todd Biermann to its directorial roster for representation in the U.S. and Canada. This marks the first representation in spots and branded content for Biermann who’s best known for his work in the TV realm including recent episodes of Broad City, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Wrecked. Biermann brings well-honed comedic chops and over 10 years of experience to Humble.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Biermann attended film school at Temple University and cut his teeth in non-scripted television, filling roles from scouting and casting to directing and producing on hit shows such as TLC’s Trading Spaces. From there he segued into directing for scripted content with the FX hit It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. He has gone on to direct numerous half-hour cable comedies including Comedy Central’s Broad City (notably the “2016” episode featuring Hillary Clinton), TV Land’s Younger and The Jim Gaffigan Show, TBS’ Wrecked, and MTV’s upcoming one-hour Sweet/Vicious. Biermann is also slated to direct episodes for the upcoming comedy The Mick on Fox.
“Throughout my career my goal has always been to keep evolving and challenging myself, and the commercial world holds incredible opportunities to experiment with storytelling and to reach new audiences,” said Biermann. “Moving into this new phase in my career is a huge step, and I’m excited to make the leap thanks to the great collaborators and supporters I’ve found at Humble.”
Shannon Lords, EP at Humble, added, “Todd has such a strong track record in the comedy space and is able to successfully adapt to a variety of styles and environments to get the most effective performances. His skillsets will be a huge asset to our roster.”
