Carlton Cuse is going to be donning a new hat in Sunday’s Season 3 finale of The Strain.
The episode, titled “The Fall,” will feature the co-creator and showrunner of the FX series doing something he’s never done before: directing. It allowed him to try a new experience, he explained to IGN, while also understanding the process of creating a show in a new way.
“There just came this point where I really felt like it was an important experience to have and I just felt like The Strain was the perfect environment,” Cuse explained of the decision to direct an episode of one of this shows. “It was a real learning experience, despite having sat at the right hand of directors for over 400 hours of television, I really felt like I had a different perspective, learned a lot. I think it will help me going forward in my relationship with prepping other directors, as well as just my general knowledge of being a filmmaker.”
