Yale Drama School graduate and Café La Mama veteran Glenn Jordan has been an "A"-list TV director since his work on the 1971 PBS production Hogan's Goat. Jordan's many prestigious TV-movie assignments have included Frankenstein (1973), Les Miserables (1978), Lois Gibbs and the Love Canal (1982) and Barbarians at the Gate (1992) He has also helmed such two-part dramatic specials as Dress Gray (1985) and Echoes of the Darkness (1987). Jordan's shining hour was the 1991 Hallmark Hall of Fame offering Sarah Plain and Tall, a winner of nine Emmy Awards; earlier, Jordan had personally picked up two Emmies for producing and directing the memorable James Garner/James Woods TV movie Promise (1986). He has also won the Directors Guild of America award for his work on the late-1970s TV series Family, as well as several Peabody awards for other projects. Surprisingly, Glenn Jordan has directed only three theatrical features, the best of which was 1984's Mass Appeal.
