21st Century Hollywood is still the Mecca for filmmaking. The studios are still here. The glitz and the glamour are still here. But it is the genius of the American cinema, which has evolved with the times, that has made Hollywood great today. This five part series The Great Directors: The Making of 21st Century Hollywood features the directors that are making the mega-franchise blockbusters bankrolling the whole system; the directors of the small indie films winning Oscars; the directors behind the second Golden age of animation; the directors who have brought feature-length documentaries to the big screen; and the plethora of foreign directors that Hollywood has welcomed with open arms from all over the world. Host and veteran actor Erick Avari showcases the great directors that have led the way to the supercharged Hollywood of the 21st Century.
