They've been talking about it for a couple seasons, and it looks like they have a confirmed slot for Emily Deschanel's chance to direct an upcoming episode of Bones.
See the full story here at GiveMeMyRemote including a short video. The article and video are spoiler free.
During the BONES panel at
Comic-Conin 2009, series star Emily Deschanel revealed that she really wanted the chance to direct an episode of the show — but creator Hart Hanson was wary of the idea, since Deschanel already works crazy hours.
It seems, however, that her persistence has paid off.
...she’ll be shooting her episode in January, right after the BONES crew comes back from their holiday break.
