RMG client MICHAEL KATLEMAN has just been hired as the new Co-Executive Producer and Director on the TNT series Memphis Beat starring Jason Lee. Katleman will be running the physical production in New Orleans for new writing Executive Producer Jan Nash as the series enters its second season.
The show centers on Dwight Hendricks (Lee), a quirky Memphis police detective with an intimate connection to the city, a passion for blues music and a close relationship with his mother. He is “the keeper of Memphis,” a Southern gentleman who is protective of his fellow citizens, reverential of the city’s history and deeply rooted in its blues music scene.
Katleman has previously served as Co-EP and Director on such series as Eastwick, Life on Mars, and Gilmore Girls to name a few.
