Lucy Liu Directed Episode Scheduled to Air Thursday, August 27 at 10/9c
“GRACELAND is a truly gripping drama series with strong, dynamic characters and a knack for shedding light on the ‘human element’ of some very provocative storylines,” said Liu. “As a fan of the series since its launch, I am so excited to be a part of this production and direct an episode for season three.”
Liu has achieved tremendous critical and commercial success in film, television and on Broadway. She currently co-stars in and directed two episodes of the highly rated drama series “Elementary,” marking her television directorial debut. In 2014, Liu directed her first short film, “MEENA,” based on a chapter from Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s bestselling book “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.” This searing short film dealt with child trafficking in India and helped to raise awareness for UNICEF’s child protection programs worldwide. A passionate human rights advocate, Liu has been involved with UNICEF as an ambassador for the past 10 years.
