Perhaps because of his reputation as the most proficient pilot director in TV history, Nutter's non-pilot work has become undervalued over the years. His work on "Shameless" has had a sterling grasp on that show's particularly dazzling balance of tones, while he has smoothly integrated himself into the all-star roster of directors on "Game of Thrones." Perhaps most notable is his work on HBO's "Band of Brothers," for which he shared an Emmy with the full directing team, and "The Pacific," where he worked on two of the miniseries' strongest installments. He knows history and he knows how to bring the hell of war to the small screen. Granted that Nutter's only long-form credit is the Katie Holmes dud "Disturbing Behavior," but that was 15 years ago. He's ready for another shot.
