Arlene Sanford directed the MITM episodes 'Red Dress' (1x02), 'Funeral' (1x11) and 'Krelboyne Girl' (2x12). She also directed lots of more or less isolated episodes of other popular series, such as 'Desperate Housewives', 'Ally McBeal', 'Boston Legal', 'Arrested Development' and 'Grey's Anatomy'.

"I think there are a lot of myths about women directors that producers need to be educated about. We still hear that we can’t control a set. But if we’re too powerful then we’re bitches."
