Michael Lee White (born August 2, 1967) is an actor, writer and producer. He starred in the 1987 TV series, Summer Breeze and several episodes of the 1993 TV Series, Spirit of Television. Behind the scenes, he was a co-writer and producer on the 1992-1993 TV Series, Computer Doctor and executive producer for the 1993 series, Spirit of Television.

Early life[edit]

White was born on August 2, 1967 in Rochester, Minnesota. He is the youngest of 3 children born to Floyd Leroy White and Yvonne Cecile Jarrett . White moved to Tucson, Arizona while he was only a few weeks old and remained through his teenage years.


White openly admits he received his start as an on-screen purely by accident. In 1985, while assisting the director on a television commercial for the University of Arizona, he was asked to step in at the last minute when one of the actors failed to show.

In 1987, White starred as Michael Wainwright in Summer Breeze, a single pilot episode which aired on the NBC television network. After NBC failed to pick up Summer Breeze, he decided it was time to go behind the camera and began to work as script consultant on a number of shows for Fox Television.

In 1993, he abruptly took over hosting duties for Spirit of Television after a devastating fire nearly destroyed the Old Tucson Studios and the show was forced to move production to California. White hosted a total of 8 episodes before the show went on hiatus for re-tooling (never to return).

Personal life[edit]

White married in September 1996 and has 3 children. Shortly after the birth of his first child, White retired from the entertainment industry and moved to Northern Minnesota.
