Movie Directors' TV Shows To Watch | Ridley Scott and Tony Scott
Ridley Scott and Tony Scott

Sir Rid worked his way up as a production designer on TV to direct episodes of Z-Cars and Mogul. Tony, meanwhile, was briefly an actor but really made an impact on the small screen with the series based on lady-on-lady love horror The Hunger. Their Scott Free production company has been in the telly business for a while now, with one of their biggest successes to date landing squarely in Procedural Land thanks to the adventures of FBI agent Rob Morrow and his maths whiz brother David Krumholtz in Numb3rs. And yes, you have to write the “3” in there, or Tony Scott blows up your car.

What To Watch: Numb3rs hit the cancellation wall after six years, but Scott Free was already diversifying, hatching miniseries The Pillars Of The Earth based on Ken Follett’s novel and their most recent hit series, The Good Wife. The legal drama finds Julianna Margulies as a lawyer who heads back into practice after her state attorney husband (Chris Noth) is caught up in a sex scandal. Offered a job by an old law school friend (Josh Charles), she fights the good fight while dealing with the family fallout from her hubbie’s infidelity.

1 RE: No mention of McG?
McG attempting to make a US version of Spaced immeditely disqualifies him from any list except "most misguided attempt to remake a television classic". More
