Among the episodes he directed this season are the two-hour premiere, and the two-hour 24 series finale. He is repped by APA.
New Castle executive producer Amann, who joins creator/showrunner/executive producer Andrew Marlowe, previously spent four seasons on CBS’ Without A Trace, the last two as co-showrunner/ executive producer. He is repped by Gersh.
