Paris K.C. Barclay (born June 30, 1956) is an American television director and producer, and the President of the Directors Guild of America. He is a two-time Emmy Award winner and is currently among the busiest single-camera television directors, having directed over 130 episodes of television to date, for series such as NYPD Blue, ER, The West Wing, CSI, Lost, The Shield, House, Law & Order, Monk, Numb3rs, City of Angels, Cold Case, and more recently Sons of Anarchy, The Mentalist, Weeds, NCIS: Los Angeles, The Good Wife, In Treatment, Glee, and Smash. He is married to Christopher Mason. A few years back they decided to come home a day early from their month-long stay in Boston. Incredibly, their previously scheduled flight turned out to be none other than one of the planes that flew into the World Trade Center on 9/11. “After that, Paris and I came to the conclusion that we needed to make a difference in the world,” Mason recently told The Advocate. “For us it came to adopting some kids.” The couple now has two sons they adopted from the Los Angeles foster care system. Barclay and Mason, who works as an executive in the food industry, married in 2008, after 10 years together.

Currently, Barclay is executive producer and principal director of FX’s highest rated series ever, Sons of Anarchy, which aired season five in 2012. and is currently in production on season six. Unusual for a series in its fifth season, Sons of Anarchy continues to rise in the ratings.

Between seasons of Sons of Anarchy, Barclay returned to directing music videos: helming LL Cool J's "Take It". Also, Barclay is currently developing a feature film biopic about the late Congresswoman Barbara Jordan starring Viola Davis, which he will direct and produce. In addition, Barclay recently served his fourth term as First Vice-President of the Directors Guild of America.

Barclay was born in Chicago Heights, Illinois. He attended La Lumiere School, a private college preparatory boarding school in La Porte, Indiana. On scholarship, he was one of the first African-Americans to attend the school. Barclay then went on to Harvard College, where he was extremely active in student musical theatre productions and the a cappella singing group the Harvard Krokodiloes. During his four years there, he wrote 16 musicals, including the music for two of the annual Hasty Pudding shows.
