Director Biography - Frank Harts

FRANK HARTS is currently working with the Obama’s Higher Ground Productions and Netflix on the film Rustin directed by George C. Wolf. He recently wrapped two seasons as a series regular on the hit show Prodigal Son for Fox/Warner Brothers Television. Raised in the Midwest, Frank is of mixed heritage with Southern roots on the African-American side and Brooklyn roots on the Irish side.

Frank went directly from training at Juilliard onto Broadway as George Murchison in the Tony Award-winning production of A Raisin in The Sun. He has also performed leading roles for The Public Theater, Signature, and Lincoln Center.
On-camera, Frank has worked with notable film directors Jason Bateman, Jim Jarmusch, Spike Lee, Steve McQueen, and Kenneth Branagh.
Prior to his series regular role on Prodigal Son, Frank recurred or guest-starred on Billions, The Americans, The Leftovers, Blue Bloods, Bull, 30 Rock, and Master of None in the critically-acclaimed episode, “New York, I Love You.”

The product of centuries of great African and Irish storytellers, Frank is thrilled to continue this tradition both in front of, and now behind the camera.

After the murder of George Floyd, I thought it couldn't get much worse. Then came an Asian hate crime spree. I felt a strong desire to make a film addressing these atrocities. Two Wongs is my attempt.
