Conversation with . . . Nelson George

13 06 2008

As a writer, director, and producer, Nelson George has spent the last 20 years putting together projects that most of his colleagues wouldn’t take a chance on.

From “The N-Word” to Queen Latifah’s “Life Support,” George put his passion behind these projects and stories. For the last few years, George has been an executive producer to BET’s “American Gangster” series, where the lives of some of most notorious criminals are displayed. Unlike what one sees on Hollywood films where liberties are taken for commercialism, what you see on the series is raw and real.

In promoting the DVD release of “American Gangster: The Complete Second Season,” which came out on June 10th, George talks about the work it takes to get the real story on these guys such as Frank Lucas, Melvin Williams, and John Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, the D.C. Snipers.
