Pellington to direct NBC’s ‘Husbands’

Helmer also worked on ABC's 'Widow'

Mark Pellington (“I Melt With You”) has been tapped to direct the NBC drama pilot “The Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives.”

The pilot, ordered in June from Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros. TV, revolves around three couples living in a seemingly idyllic California community that becomes a hotbed of secrets and intrigue.

Written by Sascha Penn, “Husbands” is inspired by the book of the same name by Josie Brown. Penn, Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are executive producers while KristieAnne Reed and Pellington are co-executive producers.

While best known as a feature helmer, Pellington recently directed midseason ABC drama “Red Widow.” He’s also directed and served as consulting propducer on CBS’ “Cold Case.”

“Husbands” is part of NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt’s effort to broaden NBC’s development activity beyond the traditional January-April pilot season marathon.
