ROXANN DAWSON (Director), who makes her feature film directing debut with BREAKTHROUGH, is a triple threat talent, a respected producer, director and actor. This season, Roxann will direct Morning Show for Apple, starring Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carrell, and Jennifer Aniston. Her prolific career includes directing multiples of The Deuce, House of Cards, The Americans, The Path, Bates Motel, Chance and Treme. Dawson has been the producer-director on the perennial hit Scandal, as well as Cold Case and Crossing Jordan. Other credits include The Chi, Marvel's Runaways, Lost, The Good Wife, and Hell on Wheels. Dawson recently directed the pilot and first two episodes of Mercy Street for PBS and Scott Free Productions. Mercy Street marked the first American drama to air on PBS in more than a decade.

A native of Los Angeles, Dawson graduated from UC Berkeley as a Theatre Arts Major. Shortly after graduation, she landed her first professional job as Diana Morales in the Broadway production of A Chorus Line by attending an open call in San Francisco. Suddenly, she found herself in New York rehearsing with Michael Bennett at the Shubert Theatre. While in New York, Dawson also performed in numerous Off-Broadway and regional theatre productions including plays at Circle Repertory Theatre (where she was a member), Arena Stage, and at CTC, where she played Miranda in Julie Taymor's The Tempest. A series regular role in Aaron Spelling's Nightingales brought her back to Los Angeles, where she continued to act in series and films. She was honored to be asked to return to Broadway to close A Chorus Line as the last Morales.

Soon after, she was cast as B'Elanna Torres in Star Trek: Voyager, and during the series' seven-year run, she started a family and began her directing career. Voyager offered her the first opportunity to direct and she proceeded to direct 10 episodes of the next Star Trek series, Enterprise. In addition to directing, Roxann co-authored a trilogy of novels with Daniel Graham, The Tenebrea Trilogy, published by Simon & Schuster.
