Director Biography - Iyin Landre

Iyin Landre is an actor and filmmaker based in Los Angeles. She has directed music videos for The Velvet TeaParty, VonLust, Lemmy Adams and the DoneWrong, some of which have been licensed internationally. She also recently completed a commercial for Lenovo and a promo for Lilly Singh, the mega YouTube influencer. Currently, Landre is in negotiations for her feature "The Fates," which had a very successful Kickstarter campaign that went viral on Upworthy.

Growing up in New York City, Landre was used to seeing diversity on the city streets and it wasn't until she got older that she realized art did not always imitate life. Rarely seeing anyone on TV/film that looked like her or were the heroes in their own stories, Landre was deeply impacted by this and it became a turning point in her life. Since then, she has made it her goal tell stories with more Asian representation, one film at a time.

Director Statement

After a phone conversation with a friend about another hit show, I started thinking about how the badass female character I wanted to see/play on TV hadn't existed yet. A few days later, the movie "The Game" (Fincher) came to mind and I started to ruminate -- what if it was similar to "The Game" but with a female protagonist? And what if her and her team had to push people to their limits like Michael Douglas falling through that atrium in that one scene?

My mind started spinning thinking about all the scenarios that could arise. One thing that sprung instantly (which is the second "game" in this pilot) is the racial tension that has been heightened with the incoming administration. I saw it as an opportunity to humanize both sides of the story.

I love Lux. She's great at helping other people with their problems but at the same time she can't help herself. I love this paradox. And with the cliffhanger of this pilot, I feel like there is so much to be explored in this first season, which I'm currently developing.
