Adam Rifkin


Adam Rifkin is a writer/director/producer/actor whose eclectic career ranges from broad family comedies to gritty urban dramas. Most recently Rifkin wrote, executive produced and directed all 11 episodes of LOOK The Series for Showtime.  Based on his critically acclaimed and award winning film of the same name, LOOK is a controversial drama that takes us into the foreboding world of hidden cameras. Like the movie, the unique show is shot entirely from the point of view of the hundreds of surveillance cameras we all pass in front of on a daily basis.  Additionally, Rifkin wrote UNDERDOG for Walt Disney Studios, a tent pole comedy based on the iconic 1960's cartoon show, ZOOM, starring Tim Allen, KNUCKLEHEAD starring WWE superstar Big Show, and two hits for DreamWorks, MOUSEHUNT and SMALL SOLDIERS. Continuing in the family film genre, he scribed the big screen versions of WHERE'S WALDO for Paramount/Nickelodeon and HE-MAN for John Woo and 20th Century Fox.  As a director Rifkin helmed the beloved teen comedy DETROIT ROCK CITY for New Line Cinema, a seminal work that continues to speak to and inspire generations of rock fans. He also wrote and directed the car crash epic, THE CHASE, starring Charlie Sheen, a film that James Cameron described as "awesome", the critically lauded NIGHT AT THE GOLDEN EAGLE, a dark drama starring James Caan, Natasha Lyonne, and Vinnie Jones, as well the cult classic THE DARK BACKWARD. In the year of its release THE DARK BACKWARD was named one of the top ten films of the year by the New York Post.  As a performer, Rifkin Starred opposite Ali Larter in, as well as wrote and directed, HOMO ERECTUS, a comedy set in caveman times that had its World Premier at the Slamdance Film Festival.  He also co-directed and starred in WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD, a mock documentary chronicling the trials and tribulations of what it takes to pursue a career in tinsel town. The film boasts an impressive list of cameos including John Travolta, Sandra Bullock, and Will Smith.  Rifkin has also recently added author to his list of accomplishments, having penned SHMOBOTS, a comedic graphic novel about slacker robots.  The critically acclaimed book was called "Hilarious" by Publishers Weekly and was said to have "A surprise on every page" by comic book icon Stan Lee.
