"The Chair", created by Project Greenlight executive producer Chris Moore. The competition documentary series follows two directors through the process of bringing their first feature to the screen. The up-and-coming directors, Shane Dawson and Anna Martemucci, are provided with an identical screenplay How Soon Is Now, which they must craft as their own film using the same budget and filming in the same city. The series documents the creation, marketing and theatrical release of both adaptations, which will also air on Starz. Written by Jiilo_Kim

Better than I ever could have imagined!
19 October 2014 | by heatherleefoxSee all my reviews

When this show first came on, I DVRed it (like 4 episodes before I actually watched it), expecting to just watch the show when I had nothing else to watch. Boy was I underestimating the lure of "The Chair."

I find myself eagerly awaiting the next episode and I have never really been interested in the behind-the-scenes type stuff (some exceptions would be high fantasy movies with lots of special effects) nor am I interested in reality TV. I find myself rooting for both directors, knowing "there can be only one" winner of this competition

"The Chair" is one of the best shows on TV right now and i can't wait to see the 2 movies that come out of it.
