Hung, 1st Season, Episode 1-4
Filmfest 2015

"Most of what I was doing between 2005 and 2010 was working on a screenplay for a film I still have not made yet. It would be kind of my first big film, with visual effects and international scope. Maybe it will be my next film, I hope so. Anyways, it’s a very difficult screenplay. In the midst of that I was so desperate to get away from writing and meet up with actors. It was 2008 and I hadn’t directed a film since 2004. So I accepted to make the pilot for HUNG. It was a funny story, it had voice-over and an interesting location, I had never really visited before: Detroit!"
