Justine Bateman

Justine Bateman is no stranger to show business. She is an actor, director, producer, and writer. She began her acting career in 1982 when she portrayed Mallory Keaton on the popular sitcom Family Ties (1982–1989). After the end of the show, she continued to appear in a  number of films and TV shows, such as Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1996), Men Behaving Badly (1996–1991), Californication (2008), and Desperate Housewives, among others. She has been involved in online and digital video since the late aughts. In her late forties, Bateman began to radically change her career path, both by moving behind the camera to direct, write,and produce, and by attending UCLA. She graduated in 2016 with a degree in Computer Science and Digital Media Management. She wrote, directed, and produced two short films, Five Minutes (2017) and PUSH (2017), which she also starred in. She is in production as director for her first feature-length film, Violet. Fame is Bateman's first book, which dissects the sociological phenomenon that fame is and the way that it shapes our culture and society.
