Our Summer 2016 LA Interns recently met with director Jack Bender. Bender started directing on the stage, and while he has a few features and several television movies to his credit, his emergence as one of the most sought-after episodic directors coincides with the evolution of high quality television. His lengthy body of work includes Lost, The Sopranos and Game of Thrones. It was on Lost that his larger value was noted, and he became an executive producer as well as a director. He has continued to wear multiple hats on Under the Dome, The Last Ship and is at work on a new series based on Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes.
