    I'd like to see Edgar Wright come back to TV. Spaced is one of my favorite series ever.

    I feel like once he reaches his "retirement," that's just what he'll do.

    I hope you're right. Netflix would give him all the money.

    This. I tend to forget that he's already an Emmy nominee for CSI. I'm sure he'll venture over soon enough. Everyone is!

    Tarantino and his work will greatly benefit from a move to television. His movies are getting exceedingly bloated off late. TV is more tolerant of such excesses than cinema.

    Best of the Decade

    Shyamalan - ok, he has 1 episode of Wayward Pines and is an executive producer of that show.

    Great choice. I would love to see a slow, meditative Margaret-esque story play out on television. Considering how much he had to fight over the theatrical length, it might have fared better if he had produced it as a miniseries or tv movie in this era.

    MILDRED PIERCE

    Dottie Gets Spanked also hit TV waves in addition to Haynes' fantastic episode of Enlightened

    Kenneth Lonergan
    John Sayles (done TV episodes before but his novelistic storytelling approach would fit well in the current TV landscape)
    Nicole Holofcener (also done TV episodes but her stories would also fit)
    Terry Zwigoff- because he needs work
    Hal Hartley- Has done TV episodes but his storytelling is kinda perfect for episodic TV.

    Michael Haneke should direct the final Game of Thrones episode, or Attack on Titan, if you're anime fan.

    I feel like Ridley Scott would be good fit for TV, give how much he's forced to cut from his theatrical releases.
