PODCAST: Director Hanelle Culpepper on directing Star Trek: Picard and making history

Hanelle Culpepper is an accomplished director in her own right. She has directed TV in Hollywood for years. She’s done plenty of action and genre shows like Sleepy Hollow, Supergirl and The Flash. But Hanelle has been thrust into the spotlight over the past month because she directed the pilot episode of Picard, the new series on CBSAllAccess that brought back Patrick Stewart into the role of Jean Luc Picard. Captain of the Enterprise from Star Trek Next Generation. What makes it even more significant, is the fact that she is actually the first woman to ever direct a Star Trek pilot in the history of the franchise. And of course the first Black woman as well. This episode is also a directing/producing masterclass, so if you know anyone who is a director-in-training, please send them this episode!
