THE EASTMANS pilot was shot for CBS/WBTV in the spring of 2009.  Starring Donald Sutherland, Jacqueline Bisset, Saffron Burrows, James D'arcy, David Wilson Barnes, Gabby Hoffman and Jesse Bradford, The Eastmans is a dynamic family drama with an intense and relevant medical procedural. Photographed by Larry Sher and designed by Stephen McCabe, the environments were composed to accentuate the formality of the patriarch, and then mixed with modern elements to represent the children's innovation.   The pilot was scored with songs from Andrew Bird's 2007 album Armchair Apocrypha, and Devendra Banhart's 2007 release, Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon, giving the piece a quiet eerie elegance.  CLICK HERE for a lovely interview by Neely Swanson about the process of making THE EASTMANS with writer Margaret Nagle.
