Profile image for Peter Sharp

Peter Sharp

Director

Peter Sharp is one of New Zealand's most prolific directors of screen drama. Though his directing work covers the gamut from police shows and soap satires to live performance, Sharp is best known for his work helming kidult dramas - including Maurice Gee period tales The Fire-Raiser and The Champion. He also directed award-winning mini-series Erebus: the Aftermath.

He is unquestionably one of the best drama directors we've ever had for television. Together we brought out each other's strengths. Producer Ginette McDonald, on Peter Sharp.
