Pamela Fryman (born August 19, 1959) directed 3 episodes of Season 1 on King of Queens, the "Pilot" episode, "Head First", and "The Rock". She is best known for directing many episodes of of another hit CBS-TV sitcom, How I Met You Mother.


Fryman, who was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, got her first job on The John Davidson Show as an assistant to the talent coordinator, and went on to be a booth production assistant and secretary on Santa Barbara, eventually moving up to assistant director (AD), and director.[1] In 1993, producer Peter Noah, with whom she had worked on the game show Dream House, gave Fryman a chance to direct an episode of the short-lived sitcom Café Americain. These would be the first stepping stones toward a long and successful career.[1]

Before her directing career blossomed, Fryman pursued stage directing. On the set of Frasier, rehearsal resembled a play staging, which is exactly what creator and executive producer David Lee had in mind when he hired her.[1] Fryman directed 34 episodes of the show from seasons four through eight.
