Curtis will direct episode No. 208 as part of Ryan Murphy’s Half Foundation initiative. The episode is scheduled to begin shooting on October 12 and air in November.
Murphy’s Half Foundation is an initiative that offers jobs, mentorships and scholarships to women, people of color and members of the LGBT community seeking employment in entertainment. The foundation, which Murphy will run through his 20th Century Fox Television-based company, will offer guidance to these often overlooked storytellers. Curtis also will serve as mentor to one of the foundation’s students.
Curtis previously directed a 1992 episode of Anything but Love and a music video, but this will be her first hourlong drama.
