Minkie Spiro's sold on Knucklehead.

by Andrew MacGregor


Prolific TV director Minkie Spiro has signed with Knucklehead's global roster as '3 Body Problem' blows up on Netflix. Spiro directed three episodes of the sci-fi drama, adapted from Liu Cixin's novel of the same name, with an eye for spectacle and beauty.

Her other credits include 'Better Call Saul', 'Barry', and 'The Plot Against America'—a pedigree that took Tim Katz's breath away. "Minkie's ability to shoot incredible film, capture amazing performances that are funny and sad in equal measure, handle massive visual effects, A-list actors. and keep a wry sense of humour means that she is an almost perfect director to introduce to commercials."

"All that and the fact that she's a real laugh to work with means we couldn't be happier to have her on board," Katz says. "The ride starts now." This suits British-born Spiro, as she wants to reach adland as soon possible.

"It is an honour to be joining Knucklehead—a huge bundle of talent and brilliance within the commercials world. I can't wait to bring my directing skills to commercials, as I love the art of capturing a story in bite-sized form!" Keep your eyes peeled for Spiro's TVC debut like Barry Berkman keeps a lookout for snipers.
