HBO Gets a Piece of Roc
Network signs Charles S. Dutton to deal
The deal covers series, miniseries and movies and will feature Dutton as either an actor or director. He's won Emmys in both capacities.
"I'm excited to renew my long-standing relationship with HBO," Dutton says. "I look forward to developing other projects that will have the same stamp of excellence as our previous collaborations."
Dutton won an Emmy in 2000 for directing the HBO miniseries "The Corner" (which also took home the best miniseries award that year). His other directing credits include Showtime's "Sleeper Cell" and the HBO movie "First Time Felon."
As an actor, he won consecutive guest-acting Emmys in 2002 and '03 for roles on "The Practice" and "Without a Trace." He also starred in and executive produced the FOX series "Roc" in the early '90s.
Other recent acting credits include a recurring part "House" as Foreman's (Omar Epps) father and roles on CBS' "Threshold," HBO's "Something the Lord Made" and "Gothika."
