Andrew Bernstein Joins HBO Drama as Director and EP – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Andrew Bernstein, Director and Executive Producer of HBO The foreigner, heads to 19th century London after embarking on premium cable network drama Nevers.

Bernstein joined the series as executive producer and director.

It comes after the finale of Part I of the show’s first season, which aired six episodes and will return for six more next year. The show is currently in pre-production and is expected to resume filming for the second half of the season this summer.

Philippa Goslett, the British filmmaker behind the feature films Mary Magdalene and How to talk to girls at parties, is the period drama showrunner after Joss Whedon, a somewhat unusual writer, director and showrunner combo, left the series last November.

In addition to his work on Jason Bateman-fronted The foreigner, which was based on the Stephen King novel, it also premiered Netflix’s fourth season Ozark as well as two additional episodes.

Prior to that, Bernstein’s executive (left) produced season two of Amazon’s hit series Jack Ryan by Tom Clancy, and directed several episodes. He also co-executive produced the majority of AMC seasons two and three. Fear the living dead, and directed the two-part finale of season three, among other episodes.

He has also worked on shows such as Umbrella Academy, The Right Stuff, Mad Men, and Foundation.

The drama, which follows a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies and a mission that could change the world, will air later this year. It received a direct serial order through the premium cable network in the summer of 2018.

With Laura Donnelly and Ann Skelly, Nevers takes place in August 1896, the last years of Victoria’s reign, when London is locked to its foundations by a supernatural event that gives some people – mostly women – abnormal abilities, ranging from the wonderful to the disturbing. But whatever their particular “turn”, all who belong to this new subclass are in grave danger. It is incumbent on the mysterious widow Amalia True (Donnelly) and the brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans”. To do so, they will have to face brutal forces determined to annihilate their species.

The show got off to a good start on HBO in April with its premiere drawing over 1.4 million viewers across linear and digital TV shows, including the best start at the time for a new HBO Original on HBO Max, according to the premium cabler. The first episode topped viewership for premieres of recent HBO dramas including Lovecraft Country and The Undo.

It is also produced by Goslett, Jane Espenson, Doug Petrie, Ilene S. Landdress, Bernadette Caulfield. Whedon remains credited as a creator and executive producer.

Bernstein is replaced by CAA, Sara Bottfeld at Industry Entertainment and Joel McKuin at McKuin Frankel Whitehead LLP.
