The Directors Guild of America has found that when it comes to who sits in the director’s chair on TV series, they’re still white and male — and that trend is growing. According to a DGA report released today, white males directed 73% of primetime episodic TV on the main networks, cable and premium cable. That’s up 1% from a similar study the DGA did last year. The guild looked at more than 3,100 episodes of TV from the 2011-2012 network season and 190 scripted series from the 2011 cable season. TV directed by minority males decline from 14% last year to 13%. TV directed by white women stayed the same at 11%, while the percentage directed by minority women increased from 3% to 4%.

HBO’s Veep and TNT’s Dallas reboot were among the eight shows found by the DGA report that didn’t hire any women or minority directors. “In this day and age, it’s quite disappointing that so many shows failed to hire even a single woman or minority director during the course of an entire season — even shows whose cast and crew otherwise is notably diverse”, said DGA First VP and Sons Of Anarchy producer Paris Barclay. ABC’s Revenge (14%), HBO’s The Newsroom (11%), ABC’s Modern Family (8%) and CBS’ CSI (5%) were among the shows that hired a non-white male director for less than 15% of their episodes. CSI: NY (33%), FX’s Sons Of Anarchy (36%), HBO’s Girls (44%) and Disney XD’s Lab Rats (80%) were among those who hired minority or female directors for a significant number of episodes. VH1’s Single Ladies and BET shows The Game, Let’s Stay Together and Read Between The Lines were given a 100% rating for hiring minority or female directors.
