‘Homeland’ Director Talks Emmy Noms, Hiring Disparity For Female Helmers

17 July 2015 6:09 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Director Lesli Linka Glatter was in the middle of a tone meeting at the “Homeland” production offices in Berlin on Thursday when news of the show’s five hefty Emmy nominations landed.

“All of a sudden our phones started going crazy,” Glatter told Variety. She was “stunned” to learn that she was in the race for directing the “From A to B and Back Again” episode of season four. (In February she took home the DGA’s TV drama award for the episode.)

The recognition was cause for celebration by the “Homeland” team, which is knee-deep in production on season five. But Glatter, a “Homeland” exec producer, couldn’t help but notice that in the top narrative series categories, she and “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway are the only female contenders for Emmy directing honors.

The playing field is little more balanced in the limited series and telepic arena, where Lisa Cholodenko »
