      Adam Shankman

      Highest Rated: 92% Hairspray (2007)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Nov 27, 1964

      Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

      Although he became instantly recognizable through his numerous appearances as a judge on "So You Think You Can Dance?" (Fox 2005- ), Adam Shankman carved out a varied career as a film and TV director, producer, and choreographer. Shankman began working as a dancer in music videos in the 1980s and moved into choreography before making his debut as a feature film director with the Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy "The Wedding Planner" (2001). Shankman's facility for comedy was quickly recognized and soon saw him helm film vehicles for Steve Martin, but he returned to his roots for cinema adaptations of the Broadway hits "Hairspray" (2007) and "Rock Of Ages" (2012). Meanwhile, he continued to work as a director on television shows such as "Glee" (Fox 2009 -15) and served as producer on a wide variety of projects from supernatural thriller "Premonition" (2007) to 2010's Academy Awards show.
