Emily chosen for Ryan Murphy's new HALF Foundation Directing Program

Ryan Murphy's newly created HALF Foundation selects up-and-coming women and minority directors to pair with more seasoned mentors and become part of the "directing pool" at Ryan Murphy Television.  Ryan has committed that half (50%) of all the directors on his shows will now be women.  Emily was selected for this prestigious program and lucky enough to be paired with the incomparable Jamie Lee Curtis.  Emily spent nearly a month with Jamie shadowing her on set as she directed an episode of her hit show, SCREAM QUEENS (Fox).  You can read more about the HALF program and Ryan's efforts to make a major change in Hollywood here: thr.cm/PeOTqS
