Robert Rodriguez-Hosted DIRECTOR’S CHAIR Returns With Guillermo Del Toro/Quentin Tarantino Episodes; Premiere Information


Earlier this year, Robert Rodriguez gave fans one hell of an episode of his filmmaker on filmmaker interview show, THE DIRECTOR’S CHAIR, with its John Carpenter episode. Giving fans an in depth conversation with the master of horror, Rodriguez and Carpenter spoke about the director’s motivations, stories and ideas behind some of his most adored films. Never one to slow down, Rodriguez is set to unleash a pretty impressive one-two punch with the recent announcement of episodes featuring conversations between the prolific director and filmmakers Guillermo Del Toro (HELLBOY, PAN’S LABYRINTH) and Quentin Tarantino (PULP FICTION, DEATH PROOF). The Del Toro episode premieres on July 9th, with the Tarantino being split into two parts, the first airing on August 13th and the second on August 27th.

Regarding the two newest episodes, Rodriguez had this to say: “These are engaging conversations that shed light on the minds of today’s greatest filmmakers. Both Guillermo and Quentin have a deep and abiding love of cinema and that made our dialogue both revealing and entertaining.  It is a privilege to have a forum like ‘The Director’s Chair’ to share our passion and give viewers an inside look at the creative process.”
