AS ONE OF "HOLLYWOOD'S BEST FILM DIRECTORS" ON REELZ
Brian De Palma will narrate at least one episode (maybe two-- see below) about his own films as part of ReelzChannel's Hollywood's Best Film Directors series, which premieres later this month. The press release promising 52 half-hour episodes states that each episode will be narrated on-camera by the featured director. The "unique series will provide viewers with fun and entertaining insights into the making of their favorite movies... featuring some of Hollywood's most influential and innovative minds--all telling their personal stories in their own words." The press release further states that each episode "will give viewers a personal and insightful look into the lives, influences and original style of today's top movie makers." ReelzChannel CEO Stan Hubbard states in the press release, "Hollywood's Best Film Directors is a fantastic series that gives viewers a look inside the movie-making process from the rare first-person perspective of A-list directors." The Reelz website currently lists 26 directors as part of the series-- either each director will have two half-hour episodes, or the other 26 have not yet been produced. Aside from De Palma, the other directors taking part include Oliver Stone, Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Paul Verhoeven, David Fincher, Michael Mann, Robert Zemeckis, and William Friedkin, among several others.
