Roger Tucker - Director
horizontal_rule

Roger Tucker has directed over thirty drama series for British TV, as well as single dramas, soaps, documentaries, current affairs, and arts programs. He has directed and written for TV and film companies in Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland and in the U.S.

Roger will be the first to admit that he wasn't into movies as a kid. In fact, anything that was wild and out-of-box - action painting, bebop, beat poetry, existentialism - was what interested this young Brit. But on one particular day while walking home from school, he passed the neighborhood cinema that was showing continental films (which he claims was a euphemism for soft porn) and he decided to go in and check it out. At the end of the main feature, he was hooked. Done deal - film would be his life.

Roger made his first film while in school, which won a Young Filmmakers' Award and a grant from the British Film Institute. After a degree in psychology at Sussex University, he joined Granada as a production trainee and worked in current affairs, arts features and drama before leaving to become a freelance director.

As a freelancer, he worked on many of the classic action series including: "Gangsters," "Shoestring," "The Professionals," "Dempsey & Makepeace," and "Bergerac." He also directed the TV spy movie, "Deadly Recruits" and two mini-series in Scotland, "Bookie," and "Winners & Losers."

He is currently teamed up with producer Frederick Muller ("Tea with Mussolini", "Fatherland") on a drama entitled "Forever or Else," about a battle between two women over one man that ends with the perfect crime.
