Greek American director and producer Greg Yaitanes recently sat down to speak with Greek Reporter about his latest Cinemax series “Banshee.“
The 10-episode drama is set in the small town of Banshee, Penn., and revolves around an ex-con/master thief who assumes the identity of the town’s sheriff while continuing his criminal activities even as he is hunted by gangsters he betrayed years earlier.
As one of the executive producers, Yaitanes, an Emmy award winning director for his work on “House M.D.,” also got behind the camera to helm the pilot episode of “Banshee.” The series features an international cast, including Greek actor Christos Vasilopoulos, who appears in six episodes.
Greg Yaitanes has been called a TV mastermind and one of the most wanted TV directors in Hollywood with a list of credits including most hit TV shows.
