Lars von Trier, the Danish director of projects such as “Nymphomaniac,” is returning to television after a two-decade hiatus, reports The New York Times.
Von Trier will be working on an English-language program called “The House That Jack Built.” His last TV project was a 1994 miniseries that aired in Europe and was called “The Kingdom.”
The Times notes: “In recent years controversy has surrounded Mr. von Trier for his actions in and out of the director’s chair. He was expelled from the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 after joking about being a Nazi and expressing sympathy for Hitler.”
