Former One Life to Live and Guiding Light director Zetna Fuentes is stepping behind the camera once again, noted DenofGeek, for Netflix's new fantasy series, Cursed. This adaptation of Arthurian legend centers on the young Lady of the Lake Nimue (Katherine Langford) and her role in bringing King Arthur to power.

I had an amazing time on daytime television and learned so much. And people explained to me that it would be a tough transition, but I'm the type of person who thinks, 'I'm going to be the one who makes it by working twice as hard.' I wanted to create that opportunity for myself.

Since, Fuentes has helmed episodes of popular shows, including How to Get Away with Murder, Grey's Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, This Is Us, Scandal, and Jane the VirginShe directed and executive produced the first two episodes of Cursed, set to debut on July 17.
