New Amsterdam episode ‘Lift Off’ directed by Kristi Zea

New Amsterdam is inspired by Dr. Eric Manheimer's bestselling memoir "Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital" about his 15 years as medical director at the hospital.

Kristi Zea has been part of NBC’s drama New Amtserdam since its beginning in 2008 serving as production designer for the pilot and 11 additional episodes. She then directed “Five Miles West” in season one and now “Lift Off” in season two.

 

In typical New Amsterdam fashion, the story of “Lift Off” has viewers on the edge of their seats, including a super suspenseful lifesaving rescue by Dr. Reynolds.  

 

“I am very proud of this episode” Kristi says, “and all the hard work that the cast, crew and all aspects of production contributed to making it so compelling.” 

New Amsterdam airs Tuesdays 9/8c on NBC and streams on NBC.com/New-Amsterdam.

A love poem to his late wife Elizabeth Murray by poet-performer Bob Holman

A SHORt Film

by Kristi Zea

In TALKING PICTURES, poet performer extraordinaire Bob Holman, founder of the legendary Bowery Poetry Club, is inspired by an exhibition of the supremely individualistic, off-the-wall paintings of his late wife, Elizabeth Murray. His performance bridges the relationship between poetry and painting, and asks the question, if paintings could talk, would they speak poetry?

 

Directed by Oscar and Critics Choice nominee Kristi Zea (EVERYBODY KNOWS... ELIZABETH MURRAY, NOTES FROM THE FIELD) with music by Oscar nominee, David Lang, and edited/arranged by Charles Caster-Dudzick. TALKING PICTURES is produced by Bowery Art + Sciences.
