Daniel Attias (born December 4, 1951)[1] is an American television director and producer. Attias' career spanned three decades, during which he directed a significant number of popular primetime television programs, including Miami Vice and Beverly Hills, 90210. He frequently works on series for HBO and has directed episodes of The Sopranos, The Wire, Six Feet Under, True Blood, Entourage and Deadwood. Attias has received two Emmy Award nominations for his directing of Entourage.

He was a regular director for the espionage drama Alias. He has also directed two episodes of Lost.

In 2001, his son David killed five people with his vehicle in the 2001 Isla Vista killings. A civil case was brought against Dan and his wife, Diana, for recklessly permitting David to drive their 1991 Saab 9000.[2] That suit was settled with confidentiality in September 2003.[3][4]

Being of Jewish descent, in August 2015 he signed - as one of 98 members of Los Angeles' Jewish community - an open letter supporting the proposed nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers led by the United States "as being in the best interest of the United States and Israel."[5]
