Marita Grabiak directed "Raised by Another".
Grabiak pushed for Claire's dream in the beginning of "Raised by Another" to be in black and white; eventually, Executive Producer Jack Bender agreed. During filming, Marita navigated conflicting input on the script and the tone of this episode from the set writer representative, and the showrunner in Hawaii. Their concerns appeased, Marita directed successfully. She turned in her 'Directors's Cut' to J.J.Abrams who called Marita to say "I loved your episode, I am not going to change a frame, I am going to air the Director's Cut as is"-- Which is highly unheard of in the TV biz. However, in a Q&A session in July 2009, Jack Bender claims he politely refused her suggestion and had to overrule her.
Has directed episodes of the following shows:

- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
