I am truly honored that I got to direct the an episode of #brooklyn99 this week, written by the hilarious & smart & kind & wonderful Lang Fisher @loulielang. This episode is something we are both super excited for you to see (as per our expressions in the pic 😃) Directing was truly the scariest and most rewarding thing I have ever taken on, and I’m so utterly grateful that @nbc & our creator Dan Goor trusted me with this incredible opportunity. Thank you to my cast mates who inspired me & encouraged me to try my hand at something so daunting. And a million thank yous to the incredible production team and crew of our show. You all are truly moving mountains… going into battle each day. I am honored to have witnessed your passion, drive, and heart. #femalefilmmakerfriday
The actress explains how daunting of a task it was to direct a whole episode. But nonetheless, it was still definitely rewarding. Stephanie expressed gratitude to the creator of the show, Dan Goor, and the whole cast and crew. They gave their full support to her while took on the role of director. She says she’s very excited for everyone to see the episode that will air sometime next year.
It would be interesting if the episode focuses more on LGBTQ rights. She is certainly perfect for the job, because not only her character but she in real life is bisexual and surely proud of it. The show will certainly have more depth in it as we’ll get too see it from a different and unique perspective.
The creator, Dan Groor, vows to make the show the perfect blend of light-hearted and emotional. So that real issues can be discussed without straying off the tone of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
“They’re hard to do. [They] still have to feel true to what the show is and still feel funny — but still give weight to the issue and explore it in a fair way.”
We’re sure that the episode Stephanie Beatriz directs will certainly do justice to the story line. We can’t wait to see see what season 6 has in store for us! Stay tuned.
