Television has always been called a writer’s medium, but it is the director who commands the words from the page to the screen with that writer. Hear from these prolific television directors as they discuss how the director’s role has changed in this new more competitive era of television, the difference between shooting for network, cable, and streaming, and how the quality of the small screen must compete with that of the movies, while budgets and production schedules have remained the same.
