Biography (wiki)

Sam Esmail (Egyptian Arabic: سام إسماعيل‎, born September 17, 1977) is an American film and television producer, director, and screenwriter who runs the production company Esmail Corp. He is best known as the writer and director of the television series Mr. Robot (2015–2019), starring Rami Malek. He directed the psychological thriller Homecoming, starring Julia Roberts, which premiered on Amazon Video in November 2018.

Esmail's work often centers on the themes of alienation, technology, and American society, and he is known to work with cinematographer Tod Campbell and producer Chad Hamilton of Anonymous Content.

Esmail was born to Egyptian immigrant parents in Hoboken, New Jersey. He has an older sister and two younger brothers, including Samer who was an editor for Mr. Robot and Homecoming. His family is Muslim.

When he was five years old, his family moved to South Carolina then to Charlotte, North Carolina. He attended high school in Summerville, South Carolina where, he said, "I used to hold Stanley Kubrick film festivals at my house in high school. These are not cool things. Back in my day, those are things that you would get beaten up for," adding, "When you're a funny-looking Egyptian growing up in Jersey and South Carolina, it kind of gets rough." The family eventually moved back to Sewell, New Jersey, where Esmail graduated from Washington Township High School in 1995. As a kid, Esmail was very interested in technology. Esmail acquired his first computer when he was nine and began computer programming a few years later.
