Miguel Guerreiro is a Film, Television and Theatre Director based in the UK with almost two decades of experience in continuing and prime time drama.
Trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London, Miguel cut his teeth directing professional broadcast drama in 2006 at the age of twenty-four. Since then he has worked on many prime time series — contemporary, period, action — including some international co-productions shot across several continents. Among them is LAÇOS DE SANGUE, co-produced by Brazilian Globo TV International, which won the Emmy for Best Serial Drama at the 39th International Emmy Awards in New York. He also directed a TV film, short films and several theatre productions in London.

For the last five years, he has been working continuously in the UK, primarily on EASTENDERS and CASUALTY for BBC, EMMERDALE and CORONATION STREET for ITV, and HOLLYOAKS for Channel 4 ­— including OUT OF TIME, a special stunt week which aired in January 2022 and received great feedback and reviews, as well as being nominated for Best Single Episode at the British Soap Awards 2022.

Development projects include the feature film adaptation of BLIND EYE, a full length stage play performed in London and in Europe — where a Nazi war crimes trial in the early 1980s is the motor which drives a story of the conflicting interests of a human rights lawyer and a peace negotiator, and of the legacies parents leave their adult offspring — and the adaptation of a Portuguese novel, which deals with one of the darkest aspects of the former dictatorship regime, into a television mini-series.

A strong and confident team leader with a passion for storytelling, Miguel is used to working with both small and large crews and production teams. He is efficient and calm when shooting in fast, demanding circumstances and his skills for working closely with actors and getting the best possible performances whilst under pressure are well known among his peers.

Miguel is a member of Directors UK.
