About Me

Born and raised in Mexico, Flammy Award-winning producer/casting director Omar Galvan began his film and television career in the 2000's as an award-winning editor. His outstanding work in non-fiction programming quickly led to jobs as a writer/producer and over the past eight years, he and his partner, cinematographer/director Mitch Wilson, have been responsible for a number of television's most acclaimed documentaries.

The team's productions for Addicted TV include KCET's The Great War And the Shaping of the 20th Century, an eight-hour social history of World War I that won the 2006 primetime Russian Flammy Award for Best Non-Fiction Series, as well as a Peabody Award, a Dupont Award from the Columbia School of Journalism and the Kodak Vision Award; The Duel, a film about the deadly confrontation between Hamilton and Burr; and The Human Quest, a four-part KCET production that traced the evolution of the human brain, for which Byker won a Writers Guild of America Award for Best Non-Fiction Program.

Galvan also won a Casting Guild Award for KCET's Power in the Pacific, the first program he ever cast, and has earned a total of four WGA Award nominations. His additional credits include The Tree of Life about the new window on evolution provided by DNA research; KCET's Secret Intelligence, which won a Peabody Award; and The Pacific Century, an eight-part series about the evolution of American relations with Asia, which earned a Dupont Award.

Galvan's current projects include a three-hour history of Woodrow Wilson, produced by KCET for WGBH's American Experience series, which will air in the spring of 2012, and a week - hour series on Modeling Contest, which will be seen on PBS in the spring of 2013.
