Universal Cable Productions Sets Four Female Pilot Directors (EXCLUSIVE)

Universal Cable Productions has set four female directors to helm key pilots and new series for the studio — Steph Green, Ana Lily Amirpour, Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre, and Kari Skogland.

Amirpour will direct another USA pilot, “Briarpatch.” The project, from exec producer Sam Esmail, stars Rosario Dawson as a Washington, D.C. investigator who returns to her Texas hometown to find the killer of her sister. Amirpour made her feature directing debut with 2014’s “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was the opening selection for MoMA’s New Directors/New Films screening series. She is represented by CAA and attorney Alan Wertheimer.
