Neema Barnette to Direct an Episode of the Hit Amazon Series ‘Bosch’

Queen Sugar director Neema Barnette is expanding her talents to Amazon as she is set to direct an episode of the streaming platform’s hit show ‘Bosch’: 

“Pioneer director Neema Barnette (Queen Sugar, Being Mary Jane) has joined season 4 of Amazon’s upcoming series Bosch.  The popular digital series follows a relentless LAPD homicide detective as he pursues the killer of a 13-year-old boy while standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected serial killer in cold blood.

Barnette is a Hollywood pioneer who has spent a lifetime breaking down barriers. In 1986, while only 25 years old, Barnette became the first African-American woman to direct a sitcom, and, years later, the first to earn a production deal from a major studio. Over the past few decades, she has accumulated an immense body of episodic work that ranges from classics such as The Cosby Show and A Different World, and has directed classic films such as Civil Brand and Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day.Along the way she’d also racked up a host of accolades including an Emmy, Peabody and NAACP Image Award.”
