Overview

TV directors face tremendous creative challenges in their work. Putting on a new episode of situation comedy every four days or directing a live news event requires great skill and discipline. Directing for Television looks at the work of more than two dozen TV directors and examines their role in the complex process of TV production. This book is the result of five years of conversations with directors representing virtually every part of the TV schedule. Author Brian Rose explores the craft and artistry directors utilize in coming to terms with each of the major TV formats. Among genres discussed are late-night television (with directors Jerry Foley The Late Show with David Letterman and Ellen Brown of the Tonight Show with Jay Leno), news magazines (with Arthur Bloom of 60 Minutes), network newscasts (with the directors of ABC World News Tonight, NBC Nightly News, and the CBS Evening News), afternoon talk shows (with the directors of the Oprah Winfrey Show and the Maury Povich Show), sports (with directors Bob Fishman of CBS Sports and Doug Wilson of ABC Sports), and music specials (with director Steve Binder). Other formats covered include news specials, soap operas, early morning talk shows, prime time comedy and drama, pilots, and local newscasts. Directing for Television provides a fascinating inside look at the challenges of TV directing, such as the impact of new technologies, the never-ending pressure of time and economics, and the role of the TV director in a producer-oriented environment. Of interest to TV production students interested in the techniques and creative approaches of TV directing, industry professionals concerned with how directors approach their craft, and students and teachers of TV production, criticism, and history.
