Well, look at this. Looks like we are keeping it in the NC Film family. Award-winning director Lesli Linka Glatter has signed on to direct the first two episodes of our History Channel show, Six. If you worked on the series Homeland, filmed in NC for the first few seasons, then you probably already know her. This makes complete sense as our UPM for Six is David Brightbill, who also worked on Homeland while it was in North Carolina. Not only will she be directing, but she is also one of the Executive Producers of the Wilmywood filmed show.
Deadline got a great quote from Jana Bennett, President and General Manager of History. She says, “Not only is she an incredible talent, but A+E Networks has been a leader in providing more behind-the-camera opportunities for gifted female storytellers and incorporating her voice in a male-dominated landscape is vital to the success of the series.”
You don’t see many female directors, so I am pleased she will be taking on this role. That being said, our TNT show Good Behavior‘s pilot episode, titled, “So you’re not an English teacher,” was also directed by a woman whom the crew absolutely adored. Charlotte Sieling. Let’s hope she returns.
