Director Statement

With New York 2150, I wanted to tell a story I connected with and build a realistic sci-fi world with my own aesthetic style. I’ve always been interested in new technology, space, science and psychology, and I wanted my series to explore all of these subjects. I have never done a project on this scale before: designing a new world, its bible, and communicating these aspects to my dedicated cast and crew. I worked with many artists from all over the world to help me bring this vision to life.

Making this pilot with this team was a great experience, but our journey has just begun. New York 2150 is an introduction to a story that will hopefully span three eight-episode seasons. I’m grateful to the amazing cast who believed in my vision and whose performances exceeded my expectations. We all clicked from the very first rehearsal and still stay in touch. The cast and I look forward to shooting more episodes together and welcoming new members to our team.
