Jason Winer is a graduate of Northwestern University and an alumnus of the Improv Olympic Theatre. He began his career as an actor, improvisor, and photographer before making the transition to directing with the short film "The Adventures of Big Handsome Guy and His Little Friend" in 2004. The film was purchased by 20th Century Fox and turned into a pilot, which Winer co-wrote and co-produced. Following that, he wrote and directed several highly regarded pilots for CBS, FOX and ABC, including "Giants of Radio," "Sluts" and "This Might Hurt." In 2010, he directed the pilot for ABC's "Modern Family," for which he won the DGA award for outstanding direction of a comedy series. Winer served as the producing director on the show's first season, directing thirteen of the twenty-four segments. He recently signed his second two-year overall development deal with 20th Century Fox, and is currently directing his first feature film-- a remake of the 1981 comedy "Arthur" for Warner Brothers Pictures, starring Russell Brand and Helen Mirren.
