Though not as celebrated or as widely-known as film directors, TV directors face tremendous creative challenges in their work. Putting on a new episode of situation comedy every four days or directing the Super Bowl or a live news event requires great skill and discipline. Directing for Television looks at the work of more than two dozen directors and examines their role in the complex process of TV production.
