Non-exclusive deal keeps helmer with 'Mother' for two seasons
Chris Harris. Fryman is one of the few veteran female helmers in TV, where she’s been working steadily since the 1990s on series including “Frasier,” “Just Shoot Me” and “Two and a Half Men.” She’s also among the most sought-after directors for comedy pilots. This year, she lensed the CBS laffers “The Assistants” and “How to Be a Gentleman,” the latter of which earned a spot on the Eye’s fall sked. Fryman is expected to direct the second episode of “Gentleman” as well. In March, CBS announced a deal to extend the run of “Mother” until at least the end of the 2012-13 season. Fryman is repped by ICM.
