Liz Friedlander is set to direct CBS’ Kevin Williamson drama pilot, from WBTV. Written and executive produced by The Following creator Williamson, the psychological thriller centers around a pair of detectives who handle stalking incidents for the Threat Management Unit of the LAPD. Friedlander has a shorthand with Williamson — she has directed multiple episodes of The Following and Williamson’s CW series The Vampire Diaries and helmed the pilot and multiple episodes of CW’s The Secret Circle, which Williamson executive produced.
Craig Zisk (New Girl, Parks & Recreation) is set to direct NBC’s comedy pilot Two To Go, from Universal TV, David Janollari Entertainment and Jason Bateman’s Aggregate Films. Written by Kevin Chelsey and Bryan Shukoff, the project centers on long-time best friends Kurt and Laura who grapple with the challenges of modern-day dating. This marks the second pilot for Zisk this season — he just wrapped ABC’s comedy An American Education. He also was a co-executive producer/director on Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment and attorney Jared Levine.
