X. Dean Lim ( “XDL” ) wrote and directed the SxSW Film Festival Grand Jury nominee "First World Problems" - a pilot exploring Asian Privilege.
Shot in ten hours with a budget of $900, FWP was featured in Indiewire off a script that scored in the top 5% on The Blacklist. It had its International Premiere at London’s Raindance Film Festival.
Dean has directed nearly 1,700 episodes of television. He has worked single camera, multi-camera and LIVE TV and is equally adroit in both drama and comedy. Recently he directed ABC/SONY's The Good Doctor and NBC's Chicago MED. This fall he’s set to helm CW’s KUNG FU reboot before returning to the windy city for additional work on Chicago MED.
Originally from New York, Dean is a former magazine feature writer. He is also a comic-book-level illustrator and a college-level tennis player - after playing the game for three months, he made it to the finals of the US Open in Paddle Tennis.
He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two daughters.
