Director - Writer

E. Paul Edwards

Paul Edwards was born into a military family moving from place to place and felt extremely fortunate. "I lived overseas for a good portion of my life growing up - Cuba, Newfoundland, Morocco. It was really great." Paul eventually settled down in Washington D.C. for high school but he soon went off to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he received his B.A. in history and M.A. in the school of film and television. Out of college, Paul worked as a video artist for Public Television, receiving a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Paul's efforts resulted in the creation of a non-profit production company specifically designed to supplement the local PBS stations with programming.

Once Paul moved to Hollywood, he pursued a career writing episodes of popular television shows including "Knight Rider," "Fall Guy", "21 Jump Street," "Baywatch Nights." Paul's goals, however, were not limited to writing for television. Throughout his career Paul has written several screenplays including his biography which was sold to Kevin Costner's TIG Productions. "Fighting Words", however, is a film that he wanted to direct himself.
