Geektown Radio 232: ‘Watchmen’ Cinematographer Greg Middleton, TV News, Film News & UK Air Dates!

This week’s Geektown Radio podcast will be the last full news show of 2019, so I’m joined by co-host Matt from Entertainment Talk to review our week in tv and film, plus we chat about the weekly tv news, along with a look at the next few crazy weeks on tv as we head into the festive period! We also have a great interview with ‘Watchmen’ Cinematographer, Greg Middleton.

Based in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, the ‘Watchmen’ series embraces the nostalgia of the original Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ groundbreaking and seminal graphic novel, while attempting to break new ground of its own. The series comes from executive producer Damon Lindelof (‘Lost’, ‘The Leftovers’), and is a “remix” of the original source material that offers a fresh story and new characters.

Greg Middleton served as the director of photography for half of the season’s episodes, including the notable and highly acclaimed black and white episode, “This Extraordinary Being.” In the interview Greg talks in detail about his work on that episode and across the series, along with discussing his process and how they achieved this phenomenal drama. Ahead of next year’s Emmys, the series is already racking up plenty of awards buzz with nominations for the Satellite Awards, Critics’ Choice Awards, Art Directors Guild, Costume Designers Guild, and Writers Guild Awards, to name a few.

In addition to working on ‘Watchmen’, Greg has previously served as cinematographer on shows such as ‘Game Of Thrones’, ‘The Killing’, and ‘Fringe’, along with movies such as James Gunn’s ‘Slither’ and the upcoming Patty Hearst drama ‘American Woman’ starring ‘Watchmen’s Hong Chau.
