Eric signs with The Department of the 4th Dimension

Eric has a new job. There is a press release at Shoot Online today that says he has joined the production company The Department of the 4th Dimension full time and is developing a “comedy-dialogue driven project encompassing both spots and web content.”

Not entirely sure what this has to do with Glee, but here is the release (they have his comedy reel on, too):

‘Glee’ Finds The Department of The 4th Dimension

LOS ANGELES, November 09, 2011 | SHOOT Publicity Wire | — Production and design studio The Department of The 4th Dimension (The D4D) today announced the addition of director Eric Stoltz to the company’s roster.

Well known for his work as an actor in film, television and on stage, including Pulp Fiction, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Will and Grace, and Our Town, Stoltz has had considerable success in the director’s chair. He has helmed some of television’s most popular shows including Glee, Grey’s Anatomy, Nip/Tuck and Boston Legal, after an Emmy nomination for his directorial debut, the Showtime film, My Horrible Year.

“It’s no secret advertising and marketing content with entertainment value has become essential to engaging and motivating audiences —whether it’s TV spots or content for the web—so providing our agency partners and their clients with a collaborative, comedy-dialogue director like Eric is very exciting,” said D4D Executive Producer, Ron Cicero, “He is in the middle of helping to create some of pop culture’s most influential shows right now and we are thrilled to have him.”

Mr. Stoltz found the diversity of work and The D4D’s focus on storytelling compelling, adding, “I’m always looking forward to telling stories with actors in new and different ways and the work The D4D has done has inspired me to venture into brand-inspired content—both commercials and longer format projects.”

The D4D is Eric’s first full time spot roost. He is currently prepping a comedy-dialogue driven project encompassing both spots and web content, and is slated to direct additional episodes of this season’s Glee, having already helmed this year’s premier.

The D4D roster is represented by Kelley Class on the West Coast, Jim Deloye in the Mid-West and Laura Zinn on the East Coast. More information, including the company’s latest work on Sephora’s Sensorium, can be found at
