TV is more an actors or writers medium than directors who tend to work on an episode here and there. Though of the 12 people that directed 5+ episodes, half went on to bigger roles in shows highlighting strong females and family-oriented content.
Gilmore Girls’ format didn’t lend itself to easily introducing new characters like Seinfeld, 7th Heaven, or Friday Night Lights, making this list even more impressive. I regularly recognize faces in movies and shows only to find out they honed their acting chops in the fast-paced dialogue of Stars Hollow.
