Silas Howard is no stranger to pushing boundaries. He’s most notable for his critically-acclaimed By Hook or By Crook, which premiered at Sundance and festivals worldwide, as well as director spots for Amazon’s Transparent, The Fosters, Faking It and NBC’s This Is Us. By Hook or By Crook is screening at Frameline Film Festival in San Francisco on June 16th.
Now Howard steps back into the world of documentaries with his latest project More Than T, which delves into the lives of seven transgender individuals whose professions include an advocate, a minister, an attorney, and an actor to name a few. Their message? For their stories to become the norm in a cisgender society. More Than T is set to premiere on Showtime Friday, June 23rd at 7 p.m. EST.
After completing More Than T, Howard has a new venture on the horizon, the adaptation of Daniel Pearle’s Lincoln Center play onto the big screen, A Kid Like Jake.  A Kid Like Jake features the all-star cast of Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer, Priyanka Chopra, Ann Dowd, and Michaela Watkins. Howard will be directing the movie, set to premiere sometime in 2018.
