He also directed a digital pilot for HBO entitled “Lady Bouncer”.

Pete just finished directing a season four episode of ABC’s “Black-ish” and two episodes of FreeForm’s season one “Grown-ish”. In 2018 he is already booked for the one hour drama Greenleaf on the Oprah Winfrey Network with more assignments to come.

“Throughout my director’s journey, it’s been a process of becoming a better writer, which is not only helpful in the development of my own material, but in identifying a compelling story and finding the tools to convey that essence in a concise fashion. I’ve also served as cinematographer and editor on many of the branded content projects I direct for clients, enhancing my ability to communicate visually and meet the demands of episodic television. I’ve worked under demanding circumstances and believe that a good director responds to challenges creatively and calmly, while protecting the integrity of the story for the audience’s enjoyment…”
