Updated on: 15 Jun 2016
Renowned filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, who is bringing a TV series titled "Will" about the exploits of young William Shakespeare, has opened up about his experience working on a television project.
Q. You have just completed a dazzling episode of a series on Shakespeare for the TNT channel. How was the experience?
A. It's called "Will". I am producing the entire series. It's a $75-million show. We have to create 9 more episodes of Series 1. If It's successful it goes to Series 2.
Q. Will you direct all the episodes?
A. It is not possible for one director to do the entire show. But I'll definitely be directing some of the episodes. Since I am the producer-director I have to make sure that the entire series has the same qualities that you saw in the pilot which I directed. So I'll definitely get in there and direct some episodes. We start shooting on September 1 and on January 1, 2017 it starts telecast all over the world.
