It changed in 2005, when Geena Davis and Glenn Close decided to appear on television series, and the act of creators and performers crossing back and forth between the two mediums is relatively common. But in the late 1990ā€™s and early 2000ā€™s, it was unusual that a creator could easily jump back and forth between film and television. One creator who did was Glen Morgan.
