Barnet Kellman (born November 26, 1947) directed five episodes in the first two seasons of George Lopez.


Kellman, who was born and raised in New York City,[1] he attended the Colgate University and the Yale School of Drama, eventually earning his PhD. from Union Institute & University (then the Union Institute at Antioch). [2]Kellman got his start Hollywood in the early 1980s as a director for soap operas such as the NBC-TV daytime soap opera series Another World and CBS-TV's As the World Turns. [1] Kellman used the skills he learned on set to become a regular director of many hugely successful TV sitcoms of the 1990s. He was the main director for the CBS-TV sitcom series Murphy Brown from 1988 to 1992, and won Emmy Awards in 1990 and 1992 for his work.[1] [2] After Murphy Brown's cancellation, he bounced all over the industry, directing pilots and helming entire episodes of other successful sitcoms and dramas, such as NBC-TV's Mad About You, CBS's Designing Women, and Felicity. Kellman finally made the directorial leap to the big screen with 1992's "Straight Talk," starring Dolly Parton as a sultry, wise-cracking DJ. Kellman is still actively working on television series in Hollywood, and has recently directed episodes for and/or produced for sitcoms George Lopez, E.R., Ally McBeal, My Boys and 8 Simple Rules.
