David Nutter (born 1960) is a well-known American television director. He first came to attention directing episodes of The X-Files. In the 1990s and 2000s he developed a reputation as 'the pilot-whisperer', as he directed sixteen pilots in a row that went to series, including Space: Above and Beyond, Millennium, Smallville, Without a Trace, Supernatural, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and The Mentalist.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, David Nutter confirmed he would be taking a break for Season 4, citing the enormous time commitment to work on the show, but hoped to return for a potential fifth season. Nutter confirmed near the end of Season 4 that he will be returning for Season 5, to direct two episodes.
