Do You Have Any Favorite Directors, Writers or Producers You Follow

Not literally, you bunch of stalkers.

I have concentrated on TV Producers and Writers and maybe I should be looking at Directors.

Thomas Schlamme has become my TV director to follow. His work on The West Wing alone should propel him to the top ranks of directors.

Some of the following are complete seasons while others are just a couple episodes.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
Invasion
Jack & Bobby
The West Wing
Boston Public
Sports Night
The Larry Sanders Show
ER
The Practice
Spin City
Mad About You
Friends
Chicago Hope
It's Garry Shandling's Show

That is a strong resume.

Do you have any favorite Directors, Writers or Producers you follow?

On the writing side, David Fury and Tom Fontana.

Directing goes to Allen Coluter and David Nutter.

I don't know that I follow him, but I'm usually hopeful if I see Paul Feig has worked on something.

Jon Cassar because he directs some of the best episodes of 24 and IMO he's bound to be a feature film director once 24 ends.

David Nutter: Mr. Pilot and a solid TV director.

Mark Gordon: Grey's, Criminal Minds and Army Wives.....although I'm not sure how involved he is in the actual production of those shows.

Jerry Bruckheimer: Because I will pretty much watch anything with his name attached.

When it comes to TV I usually don't pay much attention but I do watch out for anything Aaron Sorkin is a part of.

...and if it counts, I'm all over any Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg HBO miniseries.
