Hanelle Culpepper to Direct Picard Series Premiere

CBS has announced that Hanelle Culpepper (Star Trek: Discovery, Counterpart) will direct the first two episodes of the upcoming Star Trek series about Jean-Luc Picard. This marks the first time a woman will direct a Star Trek series premiere. Discovery showrunner Alex Kurtzman commented,
Hanelle is a gifted and dynamic filmmaker whose directorial choices are always deeply rooted in character. I’ve been a fan of her work since she started with us on Discovery, and she’s the perfect person to re-introduce the beloved character of Picard to longtime fans and new viewers alike. We’re thrilled she’s joining our Trek family on this next adventure.
