'Cosmos': David Semel Will Direct Fox Docu-Series
He will helm all 13 episodes of the series produced by Seth MacFarlane.
David Semel has been tapped to direct Fox’s upcoming docu-series Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey.
Semel will direct all 13 episodes of the project, which is designed to be a successor to Carl Sagan’s iconic 1980s PBS series.
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is on board to produce, alongside Sagan’s widow, writer-producer Ann Druyan, and astrophysicist Steven Soter.
The project is slated to premiere on Fox in primetime in 2013, with National Geographic Channel, which is co-producing the project, airing encore episodes later the same night.
Semel’s credits include a plethora of supernatural-themed projects, including ABC’s No Ordinary Family, Heroes, Angel, Roswell and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He directed the pilot for CBS’ upcoming drama Person of Interest.
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will host the series.
