Star and co-executive producer Claire Danes and executive producer and DGA-winning director Lesli Linka Glatter joined Vanity Fair‘s James Wolcott at the Film Society to discuss their work on 'Homeland.'
This special evening featured a screening of an episode from the fifth season of Showtime’s Emmy and Golden Globe Award®–winning series followed by a conversation with star and co-executive producer Claire Danes and executive producer and DGA-winning director Lesli Linka Glatter, moderated by Vanity Fair’s James Wolcott. For five seasons, these women have worked to bring viewers a gripping, emotional thriller and will share with audiences what goes into making this iconic television series, produced by Fox 21 Television Studios for Showtime, which has received widespread critical acclaim for its authenticity, style, acting, writing, and directing. In its extraordinary fifth season, Homeland proved to be uncannily prescient in its portrayal of contemporary foreign affairs, terrorism threats, and the war of our times. Out of the CIA and living in Berlin, Carrie (Danes) starts a new life but realizes that she has a target on her back. As the danger intensifies, and without Saul (Mandy Patinkin) and Quinn (Rupert Friend) to rely on, one thing becomes clear… she’s never been at greater risk or had more to lose.
