The DGA mourns the passing of former board member and noted television director Paul Bogart, who died Sunday at the age of 92.
Perhaps best known for his work on All in the Family, Bogart’s directing career spanned more than four decades in which he directed dozens of television series, movies for television and mini-series, including The Defenders, Get Smart, CBS Playhouse, Alice and The Golden Girls, and a number of feature films including Torch Song Trilogy and Oh God III. For his deft touch in directing, he was honored with multiple Emmy and DGA Awards, including three DGA Awards for All in the Family and seven additional nominations.
A DGA member since 1960, the year the Screen Directors Guild merged with the Radio and Television Directors Guild to form the modern Directors Guild of America, Bogart also served two terms on the DGA National Board of Directors as a board member or alternate.
The DGA extends its condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
