Peter's television directing career continued with Northern Exposure, Party of Five, Profiler, Las Vegas, Prison Break, House, Ghost Whisperer, Eureka, Pushing Daisies and the series pilot American Gothic. He also created the series Mysterious Ways, which ran for 44 episodes on NBC. He is also the co-creator of the FX series Legit.
