Kat Coiro To Direct the First Two Episodes of Live-Action Fantasy Series THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES at Disney+

Director Kat Coiro, known for directing episodes of hit TV series Dead to Me, Shameless, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Modern Family, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, as well as the recent film Marry Me, and the upcoming Marvel series She-Hulk, has signed on to direct the first two episodes of the live-action fantasy series The Spiderwick Chronicles.

The show is based on the children’s book series by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black, and the story follows the Grace Family — twin brothers Jared and Simon, their sister Mallory and mother Helen — as they move into their dilapidated ancestral home and begin to unravel a dark mystery about their great-great Uncle who once discovered the secret and maybe foreboding faerie world existing parallel to their own.
