Two first-time feature directors tackle the same script yielding two very different results. The journey both take in their quest to make their film a success is “The Chair,” STARZ first unscripted original series set to premiere on Saturday, September 6th at 11pmET/PT
Created by Chris Moore, Executive Producer of Emmy®-nominated “Project Greenlight” and Co-Producer of Oscar®-winning Good Will Hunting, the series documents two first-time filmmakers, Anna Martemucci and Shane Dawson, who have been given the opportunity to direct their first feature film. The up-and-coming directors, with very different artistic perspectives and skill sets, are provided with an identical screenplay and challenged to create their own film. In addition to Moore, Martemucci and Dawson receive guidance from Before the Door founders/producers Zachary Quinto (“American Horror Story,” “Star Trek,” “Heroes”), Corey Moosa, Neal Dodson, as well as the script’s original producer, Josh Shader.
The docu-series aims to capture the struggle, triumph, determination and fearlessness of filmmaking in this one-of-a-kind experiment that can only be seen on STARZ.
