Cheryl Hines

Mentor

Actress, producer and director Cheryl Hines is a two-time Emmy nominee for her role as Cheryl David on HBO's Golden Globe Award-winning series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," the brainchild of "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David. She recently wrapped a three-season run on the ABC comedy series "Suburgatory," opposite Jeremy Sisto and Jane Levy. She will next be seen in the upcoming Sundance Film Festival hit "Life After Beth" alongside Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan.

She was seen in the Vuguru-produced web series "We Need Help," launched in September 2013 on Yahoo! Hines and costar Rachael Harris played exaggerated versions of themselves as actresses who share a personal assistant. In addition to creating and producing the show, she also directed all the episodes.

Hines' feature film directorial debut "Serious Moonlight" was released in 2009 through Magnolia Films. The film premiered with critical acclaim at the Tribeca Film Festival. The screenplay was written by the late Adrienne Shelly, who directed Hines in the critically acclaimed "Waitress." The film is a dark comedy centered on the troubled marriage of a high-powered female attorney (played by Meg Ryan) who learns that her husband (Timothy Hutton) is about to leave her for another woman.

Hines' additional television projects include a co-starring role in the live action/CG adaptation of the Nickelodeon hit animated series "The Fairly OddParents" and the television movie "A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!" opposite Jason Alexander. She had a major story arc on the ABC drama series "Brothers and Sisters" and a starring role opposite Megan Mullally in the ABC series "In the Motherhood," a single-camera comedy series chronicling the hilarious ups and downs of motherhood.

She has also produced and directed several television projects, including serving as executive producer and creator of the NBC series "School Pride," a proactive, alternative series that told the stories of communities coming together to renovate their aging and broken public schools. The cameras followed students, teachers and parents as they rolled up their sleeves and rebuilt their own schools, concluding with the unveiling of a brand new, completely transformed school. She also produced the award-winning comedy series "Campus Ladies" for Oxygen and the Starz original comedy series "Hollywood Residential."

Hines is one of Hollywood's busiest film actresses with starring roles in a number of feature films, including "Cold Turkey," "The Ugly Truth," "RV," "Waitress," "The Grand" and "Bart Got a Room."
