Life and career
Born in Los Angeles County, California, Correll is the son of Charles Correll, who starred as Andy Brown on the radio program Amos and Andy. He is the brother of Barbara Correll, Dottie Correll and Charles Correll, Jr., who worked on Animal House as cinematographer and directed episodes of Without a Trace, CSI: Miami, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place and Stargate SG-1.
As a child actor, Correll played the role of Beaver's friend Richard Rickover during the last three seasons of Leave It to Beaver (1960–63). He also appeared in multiple episodes of "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet," "Lassie" and "National Velvet." As a teenager, Correll became a close friend of legendary silent film comedian Harold Lloyd and his family, and volunteered to assist Lloyd in preserving and archiving Lloyd's extensive films. He continues this work today, and is credited as the chief archivist for the Lloyd Trust. He has shared his encyclopedic knowledge of Lloyd's work and life in interviews and commentary tracks for the 2005 DVD release of Lloyd's films, and in the 1991 documentary The Third Genius.
Correll made his film directorial debut with Ski Patrol.
Correll has directed episodes of The Suite Life on Deck, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Family Matters, What I Like About You, That's So Raven, So Little Time, The Amanda Show, The Hogan Family, Yes, Dear, Two of a Kind, Fuller House and many other series. He is also the co-creator of the Disney Channel original series, Hannah Montana.
In 2010, Correll sued Disney for unfair termination and alleged non-payment of creative royalties for Hannah Montana.
