It’s the reason the company was founded, and it remains the most essential part of everything we do.
Throughout her entire career, director Dennie Gordon has been a trailblazer. Helming feature films, television series, mini-series and branded content, her range of genre-busting entertainment spans an unusually broad spectrum of comedy and drama. One of the first women to graduate from Yale's School of Drama with an MFA in Directing, Gordon first gained recognition when her film A HARD RAIN (which she also wrote) was chosen by Showtime's Discovery Program.
After attracting the attention of a couple of guys names Steven Spielberg and George Lucas (maybe you’ve heard of them?), A HARD RAIN went on to win dramatic awards at the British Short Film Festival and the Hampton's Film Festival. It also caught the eye of David E. Kelley, who enlisted Gordon to direct multiple episodes of his television series including GOLIATH, (where she was Co EP) PICKET FENCES, CHICAGO HOPE, ALLY MCBEAL, and THE PRACTICE. And with that, a TV legend was born!
Gordon went on to direct over 100 hours of network television, including such critically acclaimed series as LEGION, BLOODLINE, RECTIFY, EMPIRE, KINGDOM, POWER, HELL ON WHEELS, GRACE & FRANKIE, THE OFFICE, 30 ROCK, Aaron Sorkin’s SPORTS NIGHT, and HBO's TRACEY TAKES ON, for which Gordon won the DGA Comedy Award. Gordon recently completed the mini-series WACO, JACK RYAN Season 2 and HUNTERS starring Al Pacino. More currently, Gordon also finished Apple TV exclusives, SEE and FOR ALL MANKIND, Cinemax’s WARRIOR, and Netflix’s RUPAUL’S AJ AND THE QUEEN.
Gordon also has some features under her belt, having directed comedy cult hit JOE DIRT and WHAT A GIRL WANTS. Gordon was the first American woman to direct a film for the domestic Chinese market, MY LUCKY STAR, starring Oscar nominee Zhang Ziyi and Wang Leehom. MY LUCKY STAR was the number one film in China for 4 weeks on 5000 screens! How’s that for reach?
