Biography

Lewis Teague (born 8 March 1938 in Brooklyn, New York) is a film director, whose work includes Alligator, Cat's Eye, Cujo, The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion!, Navy SEALs and The Triangle. He apprenticed with Sydney Pollack at Universal Television, and was a production manager on the rock concert documentary Woodstock (1970).

Teague found gainful employment working for Roger Corman throughout the 1970s: he handled second-unit director chores on Death Race 2000 (1975), Thunder and Lightning (1977) and Avalanche (1978) and served as an editor for Monte Hellman's Cockfighter (1974) and Jonathan Demme's Crazy Mama (1975). Teague was also second-unit director on Samuel Fuller's World War II movie, The Big Red One (1980).

Made his feature debut as the co-director of Dirty O'Neil (1974). He followed this with the Depression-era crime exploitation movie The Lady in Red (1979), which he also edited. The horror-creature feature Alligator (1980) and the urban vigilante film Fighting Back (1980) (TV) followed. Teague directed two Stephen King adaptations in the 1980s, Cujo (1983) and the anthology film Cat's Eye (1985). His other films include The Jewel of the Nile (1985), the action movie Navy Seals (1990), the science fiction offering Wedlock (1991) and the made-for-TV movie The Triangle (2001) (TV). In addition to his film work, Teague has directed episodes of such TV shows as "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" (1962), "Barnaby Jones" (1973), "Shannon's Deal" (1990), "Profiler" (1996) and "Nash Bridges" (1996). After a five-year absence from directing, Teague directed the dramatic short Cante Jondo (2007).
