Before They Were Blockbuster Directors: 8 TV Episodes by the People Behind 2017’s Biggest Films

Before They Were Blockbuster Directors: 8 TV Episodes by the People Behind 2017’s Biggest Films
Even though the worlds of film and TV are converging more than ever before, it’s interesting to note just how many of the people behind the biggest films of the year have tried their hand at TV work in the past.

Get Out” director Jordan Peele never officially directed an episode of his long-running Comedy Central sketch show “Key & Peele,” but his debut film currently sits at No. 7 on the year’s domestic box office list. Go up and down the rest of that chart and you’ll find movies from directors who’ve made valuable contributions to TV comedies and dramas alike.

Most of these episodes were pilots or season premieres, ways for directors to help establish a template or shorthand for what governs life in front of and behind the camera for the duration of these series. While some of these filmmakers took multiple opportunities in the TV director’s seat,

'Clerks' Actress Lisa Spoonauer Dies at 44, Kevin Smith Pens Moving Tribute
Clerks star Lisa Spoonauer died on Saturday at age 44.

The actress, who starred in the cult classic 1994 film, passed away at her home in Jackson Township, New Jersey, according to an obituary posted on the Hassler Funeral Home's website.

Clerks director Kevin Smith took to Instagram to announce the sad news, sharing some photos from Spoonauer's time on the film, as well as a heartfelt essay honoring the actress' life.

"Devastated to report that #LisaSpoonauer, who played Caitlin in #clerks, has passed away," the 46-year-old filmmaker wrote. "In 1992, I went looking for Lisa without knowing either who she was or the integral role she'd play in my life. I'd held a night of open auditions at the #firstavenueplayhouse (where we found @briancohalloran and @marilynghigliotti) but the perfect Caitlin Bree never walked through the door. So I popped

5 Things to Know About the Case of Green Beret Surgeon Jeffrey MacDonald, Convicted of Killing His Family

  • PEOPLE.com
It’s been nearly 50 years since former Green Beret surgeon Jeffrey MacDonald’s wife and two daughters were brutally murdered at their Fort Bragg, North Carolina, home.

MacDonald claimed that on that 1970 night, four intruders killed his wife, Colette, 26, and daughters Kimberley, 5, and Kristen, 2. But MacDonald was convicted of the murders.

He has maintained his innocence, and on January 26, an appeals court in Richmond, Virginia, will hear oral arguments on his “actual innocence” claim, a legal term that sets a high bar for exonerations.

The case is the focus of the upcoming People Magazine Investigates episode “The Accused,” which airs Monday night at 10 p.

Interview: Philosopher King Mike Birbiglia of ‘Don’t Think Twice’

Chicago – When comedian/writer/director Mike Birbiglia is in his element, as during the interviews he conducted at The iO Theater in Chicago, he is relaxed and ardently philosophical. He has written and directed a new film, “Don’t Think Twice,” which is about a improvisation comedy troupe, but it’s also about life.

“Don’t Think Twice” – besides being a clever play on the famous Bob Dylan song title – is essentially about the stages of life, and how we react to our own ambitions. The members of the comedy troupe – portrayed by (clockwise in the picture below, starting top left) Mike Birbiglia, Kate Miccuci, Chris Gethard, Gillian Jacobs, Keegan-Michael Key and Tami Sagner – are at a crossroads in their professional and personal lives, and have to deal with the sudden uptick of fame to one of their members. As Birbiglia did with his first feature, ‘Sleepwalk with Me,’ he

5 cars made famous by TV and film

The cars we see in TV and film can put them on the map for those who don’t follow updates in the world of four wheels. So which cars have been made famous by TV and film, that you can perhaps pick up yourself from LeaseCar UK and take for a spin? Let’s take a look…

Made famous by: The Walking Dead

There was a lot of debate over the vehicle Rick Grimes and co decided to use to get around during the zombie apocalypse – many people believe the show is set in 2003-4 which is when the comic was originally printed, but the car used is a 2011 model. However, creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, stated that he doesn’t want to limit the show to a timeframe but the car model used definitely got people talking.

Saluting geek TV's "Zeppo" episodes




Buffy, Doctor Who, Star Trek and more have all devoted episodes to members of their supporting cast...

Over an extended run, some television shows give off the impression that all life in their universe revolves around a small number of characters, but if they run long enough, writers and producers will invariably have to look elsewhere every once in a whle. Maybe on another day to every other episode, when the forces of evil rally and all seems lost, the good guys are... otherwise occupied, leaving someone else to pick up the slack.

As a dramatic convention in pop culture, foregrounding minor characters dates at least as far back as Tom Stoppard's 1966 play Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, which takes place “in the wings” of Shakespeare's Hamlet as the two minor characters have little comprehension of the tragic events going on concurrently. But over the years, geek

Why The Walking Dead hates its viewers – Season 6A Review

Oli Davis looks back on the first half of The Walking Dead season 6…

The last two episodes of The Walking Dead Season 6A managed to recapture the magic of the openers. Dramatic, poignant and superbly directed in places. Glenn is nearly reunited with Maggie, Denise has been kidnapped by Morgan’s imprisoned Wolf, and Rick and Co. are setting off on a daring break for the armoury.

They shift forward carefully in slow motion, camouflaged by zombie guts. The music rushes towards a crescendo. Sam, Jessie’s eight-year-old, in-shock son, begins to mouth “Mum? Muuum?” The piano gets louder. He’s surrounded by zombies. He’ll get them all kil-


The episode ended so abruptly, I thought my completely legal stream had been taken down.

“Uncle Rick says shut the f*** up.”

Was that really it? The Sopranos can get away with that sort of ending. It’s The Sopranos.

Scream Queens episodes 12 & 13 review: Dorkus & The Final Girl(s)




Scream Queens delivers a cruel and ultimately disappointing season 1 finale, but that doesn't take away from its highlights...

This review contains spoilers.

1.12 Dorkus & The Final Girl(s)

It's hard to come to terms with how disappointing and infuriating Scream Queens' ending is. There are different ways a finale can let down its viewers and fans but Dorkus/The Final Girl(s) almost breaks new ground in this sense. I'd go so far as to say that Scream Queens has put Lost to shame. It doesn't so much fail to stick the landing but miss the landing entirely and break every bone in its body.

Back in July, Ryan Murphy said, "... at the end of the first season there will only be four characters out of twenty-five left" and yet ten remain. The thirteen-episode run has always seemingly been building up to a bloodbath, with Murphy effectively

Zurich: Mr Robot creator sees show as a 'long film'
The saying that ‘TV is the new film’ hits close to home for Mr Robot creator and showrunner Sam Esmail.

Esmail recounted how he first thought of the project as a film, before turning it into the USA Network’s summer hit.

The story follows paranoid young man Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) who works as an engineer at a cybersecurity company. Christian Slater plays an anarchist hacker-activist named Mr Robot.

“As far as I’m concerned we are making the movie version, it just happens to be on streaming and television,” Esmail responded to Screen at a Zurich Film Festival press conference.

“I don’t see the difference. Films are two hours long, and TV shows can go on for 20 or 30 hours or more, that affects your storytelling. But if [either format] is right for your story, I don’t see any difference.

“I originally intended [Mr Robot] to be a film, I’m not shooting it any differently. We’re executing

The "Transformers" 'Brain Trust' Assembles

As much as the whole idea sounds like an oxymoron, it appears Paramount's plans for a 'brain trust' of writers to steer the "Transformers" franchise has come to fruition.

Not long ago came word that Paramount intends to expand their mega-selling "Transformers" series with not just further direct sequels but interconnected spin-offs as well.

To do this, the likes of Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and Lorenzo di Bonaventura would lend their support to a team of writers who would come up with story ideas for that film series. Said team would be lead by producer/writer Akiva Goldsman.

Today comes word on who will be a part of that team with five names you'll probably be familiar with - "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman, "Pacific Rim" and "The Incredible Hulk" scribe Zak Penn," "Fringe" and "Lost" writer/exec producer Jeff Pinker, and "Iron Man" scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway
