Rome - Six of the thirteen directors for season two of Netflix’s Luke Cage were women.
“Gender has nothing to do with taste and where you place the camera, it’s all about passion and vision. In the past there were always questions on what African American writers can do and accomplish and female sensibility. It’s not about that. It’s about your vision for the characters on the show, that’s the number one criteria,” said writer and producer Cheo Hodari Coker.
Coker was speaking at the Netflix See What’s Next event that took place in Rome, Italy.
Netflix, on Wednesday, gave media from around the world a preview of their upcoming shows and returning series.
Luke Cage, a story about a former convict with superhuman strength who fights crime in Harlem New York, is one of the returning shows.
