Steven Spielberg wants to explore television direction


Notable director Steven Spielberg has expressed his desire to direct a TV series in near future, according to Variety. Spielberg wants to direct a series like ‘Mare of Easttown’ someday. “I do have an appetite for long-form, and someday, I will direct a long-form series. I mean, if someone would have brought me ‘Mare of Easttown,’ I would have done that. [Laughs] That was a beautifully directed story,” he told a podcast show, according to Variety. The HBO-backed “Mare of Easttown” featured Kate Winslet, who played an emotionally damaged detective investigating a murder in her small town near Philadelphia. The limited series won several Emmys. Earlier, Spielberg has produced acclaimed mini-series such as HBO’s “Band of Brothers,” but he has never personally directed an entire TV show before. At one point of time, Spielberg thought to make ‘Lincoln’, a six-hour mini-series instead of a feature film.
