StartTV would like to pay homage to one of the most enduring women in television, Rachel Feldman, who got her start as a child actor, performing on Broadway and as the voice of Lucy in Peanuts.
After graduating from Sarah Lawrence College and receiving an MFA from NYU, Feldman began her career in directing and writing. After seeing one of her early shorts, legendary television producer Steven Bochco hired her to direct the medical drama Doogie Howser, MD, which won three Emmys during its four-year run.
Feldman’s subsequent directing credits have included Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, starring Jane Seymour, and the Emmy-nominated Sisters as well as Picket Fences, Lizzie McGuire, The Baxters, Criminal Minds and Blue Bloods.
“It has been a long haul,” Feldman said in her interview with StartTV, “but the doors are opening, we are being acknowledged, we are being seen, and our work is getting through. And that is wonderful.”
