Mike Clattenburg is a Canadianmarker TV and film director best known as creator/director of the TV comedy series Trailer Park Boys (and the 2006 film, Trailer Park Boys: The Movie, based on the TV series), and This Hour Has 22 Minutes (January - November 2004).

A native of Cole Harbour, a suburb of Halifaxmarker, Nova Scotiamarker, Clattenburg spent his years after high school as drummer in a Police-inspired rock band, The Spawning Grunions. Former Grunion keyboardist, Blain Morris, went on to compose the distinctive theme to Trailer Park Boys.

Clattenburg's jump from music to television began with his co-hosting and production of a Halifax Cable 10 show, That Damn Cable Show, from 1990 to 1993. The program featured on-location interviews and profiles of Halifax entertainers, many of whom were acquaintances of Clattenburg's through his band contacts. Wedged in between the entertainer segments were comedic three-minute clips that displayed his early talent for irreverent film making. That Damn Cable Show was remarkable for its high production values despite being a local cable channel production on a shoestring budget, and made an early name for Clattenburg in film production circles.

Outgrowing the local cable television station, Clattenburg made the move to professional television production with work on comedy and drama programs at the CBC Television, including Pit Pony, Street Cents, The Bette Show and a variety of segments for Sesame Street. As well, his credits include the direction of music videos for Gord Downie, Len, and The Tragically Hip.
