November 2015

It has been awhile since I have posted here, but my tireless and persistent web site manager didn’t give up on me. As many of you know, I have been exclusively directing over the past years. There have been many projects I have been proud of and many that are on the horizon.

I just completed 2 episodes of COLONY, which will premiere on USA in January. It stars Josh Holloway (Lost) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead), Produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel). Set in the near future, Colony centers on a family headed up by Holloway and Callies who must make difficult decisions as they balance staying together with trying to survive. They live in L.A., which has been occupied by a force of outside intruders. While some people have chosen to collaborate with the authorities and benefit from the new order, others have rebelled and suffer the consequences.

I am heading to NYC to direct 2 episodes of THE PATH for hulu. The Path is an upcoming drama series starring Hugh Dancy, Aaron Paul and Michelle Monaghan. The Path examines a couple, Eddie (Paul) and Sarah Cleary (Monaghan) at the center of a controversial cult like movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power, with each episode taking an in-depth look at what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want.

But I am most excited at the moment about MERCY STREET! I directed the pilot and next two episodes of this Civil War medical drama which stars Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. It follows the lives of two volunteer nurses on opposing sides of the Civil War - New England abolitionist Mary Phinney and Confederate supporter Emma Green. It will premiere on PBS right after Downton Abby as it airs its final season. I am so excited about its premiere on January 17th!!

I hope this update finds you all well!

Till next time…
