Showrunner Damon Lindelof on HBO’s ‘Watchmen’
The Business
Alan Moore, writer of the 1980s ‘Watchmen’ comic series, has been very clear: no ‘Watchmen’ movie or TV show has his blessing. That includes the new series on HBO. Keenly aware of that, ‘Watchmen’ showrunner Damon Lindelof believes Moore may have put a curse on him. Seriously. Lindelof thought he really shouldn’t do the series but still he did--create an updated version of ‘Watchmen.’ Critics love it, the alt right hates it, and it’s delivering solid ratings for HBO. Lindelof--a passionate, lifelong ‘Watchmen’ fan--tells us why he said yes when asked, for the third time, to tackle this project.

Fayyad became the first Syrian director to be nominated for Oscar with his 2017 film 'Last Men in Aleppo,' about the White Helmets who rescue the injured at great risk to themselves. Fayyad’s new film, ‘The Cave,’ profiles a courageous young doctor as she runs an underground hospital in a besieged area outside Damascus. Fayyad gives us his perspective as Syria undergoes yet another phase of tragedy. And he tells us how he trained local cinematographers to capture more than 500 hours of footage underground--including harrowing scenes of the immediate aftermath of chemical attacks.
