EXCLUSIVE: Prolific TV director Rosemary Rodriguez has been set to helm Grandma’s Shoes From Poland, a feature film to be produced by Arthur Sarkissian and Fred Roos that she will shoot after directing the pilot for CBS’ Cagney and Lacey reboot.
The pic, penned by Fredric Lebow (co-writer, While You Were Sleeping) is set in 1970s Long Island, NY, where Eddie tries to hide his deeply dysfunctional family from a special girl he meets in college to disastrous results.
The movie reunites Rodriguez with Sarkissian and Roos; Rodriguez wrote and directed 2016’s feature film Silver Skies, which the pair produced, and she also directed an episode of the Sarkissian-produced 2012 CBS drama series Vegas that starred Dennis Quaid.
Rodriguez’s recent TV directing credits include NBC’s Rise (she directed the rookie drama’s second and third episodes), Netflix’s Jessica Jones, Amazon’s The Tick and Sneaky Pete, AMC’s The Walking Dead and multiple episodes of CBS’ The Good Wife.
