Charles Murray, Writer/Producer/Director
Charles Murray has spent the last 10 plus years as a television writer and has worked with TV heavyweights like David Milch (Deadwood, NYPD Blue), Steven Bochco (Hill Street Blues) and Ed Bernero (Criminal Minds, Third Watch). His recent foray into features is a natural extension of his ability to tell and share the best stories he can, on platforms his audience habitually and consistently consumes.
Working on shows like Sons of Anarchy,Castle, Criminal Minds and V, he’s cultivated a rich, methodical storytelling sensibility as well as the relationships one would imagine you need to feed the all-encompassing TV pipeline. He’s also written features for 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate and Screen Gems. Things Never Said is his first feature film.
