Sunday night's episode of Homeland was one of the most stunning yet for the Showtime series that won the Emmy® Award for Best Drama just a few weeks ago. It was directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, featured in Creative COW Magazine just after she won a DGA Award for "Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Dramatic Series, Night" for directing Mad Men. Having now directed over 100 episodes of TV, plus several features and shorts, hers is an amazing story of team-building on the fly, creating compelling stories under intense deadlines.

When we originally spoke to her, we pointed out that her career raises the question: where do you go when your first film is nominated for an Academy Award®, your next job is for Steven Spielberg, and just a few years later you earn your first DGA Award nomination working for David Lynch? For Lesli, the answer has been -- you go anywhere you want to! We spoke to Lesli about directing for both episodic TV and film, visual storytelling, and a journey that began at AFI's Directing Workshop for Women.

Join us now on A Storyteller's Journey.
