In the Studio with Allen Coulter

Airing on BBC World Service on Feb 26th, 2019.

The names of producing directors of elite TV drama series are usually not known to the public and they prefer to remain under the radar. Now, seven-time Emmy-nominated director Allen Coulter shares his tips and techniques with actress Gretchen Mol, whom he directed in  five seasons of Boardwalk Empire. His success began directing the pioneer show The Sopranos and then hit series like Sex and the City and House of Cards. He’s now working on a top secret drama about space and NASA for Apple TV.
