Hiatus

After seven days of prep and a half day of shooting Good Girls, production wrapped for the year. Begin hiatus!

Out of the country with the family for a couple of weeks before I fly back right after the new year to continue on with the show. Prep has been as usual – lots of driving in a van looking for locations dominates our days followed by meetings and the like. Great crew, some of whom I’ve worked with before on other shows.

What I didn’t count on was the cold and the snow (!) – including one day where the city shut down because of several inches of snowfall. I expected this in Toronto when I was there for Designated Survivor but not ATLANTA.

Anyway, I’ll spend the hiatus prepping for the show and reflecting on what was a second straight incredible year of directing. Seven episodes this past calendar year, a pilot in development, and a few more episodes to come early in 2018. It’s been a good stretch, that’s for sure.

If I have time, I’ll attempt a pictorial recap of 2017 like I did for 2016.

Good Girls

Arrived in Atlanta to start work on the new NBC show Good Girls. The show starts airing at the end of February so this is the first time I’m working on a show at the very beginning of its run. (The seventh ever episode, to be exact.)

Oh and look – the trailer just released!

I’m incredibly excited. The scripts are awesome – fun, suspenseful, thoughtful – and the characters are really wonderful. So glad to have the chance to do something for Universal Television and NBC – where our own pilot gestates as we speak.

It’s going to be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to be a part of Good Girls’ launch. Details to follow!
