The programs also featured the some of the earliest directing efforts of many of today's hottest filmmakers. Danny DeVito, Rob Reiner, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, and Harry Shearer are among the comedy stars who directed and appeared in short films for this unique anthology series. Written by J.
