After creating the darkly comedic, award-winning series Little Horribles, which played at SXSW and eventually sold to TV Land, Amy York Rubin established herself as an up and coming director with a distinct voice and visual style that broadens the traditional look and tone of the comedic genre. This year Amy directed two episodes of the Golden Globe-winning original Hulu series CASUAL, three episodes of Andrea Savage’s critically acclaimed TruTV comedy series I’M SORRY, and two episodes of the new Showtime series SMILF. Her upcoming directing credits include THE MICK (FOX), FRESH OFF THE BOAT (ABC), GROWN-ISH (Freeform), ALONE TOGETHER (Freeform), TRIBECA (TBS) and DIETLAND (AMC). Amy directed the entire first season and four episodes of the second season of FOURSOME – a half hour YouTube Red series that has become one of Youtube’s most popular scripted series to date. She also created and directed the original series “Boxed In” for IFC Comedy Crib, which became the first digital series to cross over into the network’s on-air programming.
In addition to her narrative work Amy has worked with talent such as Kate Mckinnon, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, Dave Koechner, Maria Bamford, and Ilana Glazer in branded content for platforms such as CollegeHumor, Funny or Die and Above Average, working with brands such as Google, Vanity Fair, Hyundai and GQ.
Amy continues to bridge the gap between emerging platforms and traditional networks. She wrote for the new HBO series DIVORCE from Sharon Horgan and starring Sarah Jessica Parker, and she is currently developing her own original pilot at HBO. As Amy continues to work in both the narrative and branded space, she’s constantly pushing the visual boundaries of comedy and experimenting with new ways to connect with a diverse audience that has more ways than ever to watch something funny.
