Howard was born on September 14, 1950, in New York City, New York; he was raised in a Jewish family, the son to Pamela Wolkowitz Deutch and Murray Deutch--a music executive and publisher. After graduating George W. Hewlett High School, he enrolled and attended Ohio State University. Deutch started his career through advertisements for United Artists Records, where his father was company president; he directed music videos for performers like Billy Idol and Billy Joel. His feature-length debut was for the film Pretty in Pink, soon participating in the directorial efforts for Some Kind of Wonderful and The Great Outdoors.
During the filming of Some Kind of Wonderful, Deutch met his soon-to-be wife Lea Thompson; they had two daughters together: Madelyn and Zoey Deutch--whom also became actresses themselves.
