      Working in television since 1966, director and producer Glenn Jordan has enjoyed an enormously successful career. With 56 titles to his credit, only three were not made for television. Specializing in small screen dramas and romance, Jordan has produced many of his films. Gaining traction in the early '70s, he directed the Emmy winning mini-series "Benjamin Franklin," starring Eddie Albert as the former president, earning his first Emmy for directing. The following year he directed several episodes of the drama "Family," winning a D.G.A. award for direction. He was nominated for another D.G.A. award in 1978 for the TV movie "Les miserables" adapted from the Victor Hugo novel. Joining "Hallmark Hall of Fame," Jordan won two Emmys, for directing and outstanding drama, for the episode "Promise" in 1986. Moving in to the '90s, Jordan directed arguably one of the best TV moves "Sarah, Plain and Tall." Starring Christopher Walken and Glenn Close as Sarah, the movie was nominated for nine Emmys and two Golden Globes. In 1993 he directed two Emmy nominated projects, "Barbarian at the Gates," a true story about the buyout of Nabisco, the second "Dancing with the White Dog," a family drama about an elderly man as he copes with the death of his wife, winning an award for the latter. In another successful adaptation, Jordan directed Tennessee Williams's play "A Streetcar Named Desire," starring Jessica Lange as Blanche DuBois, Diane Lane as Stella, and Alec Baldwin in the role made famous by Marlon Brando, Stanley Kowalski.
