Ken Kwapis ‘75
For your SLUH Weekend TV binge, we suggest The Office. Ken Kwapis directed the pilot episode, and helped cast it as well. Which might explain why the cast and writing staff had so many St. Louisans on it that they hosted a gooey butter cake bake-off on the set. Kwapis directed the pilot, the finale and over a dozen episodes in between. He also helped develop The Bernie Mac Show, and has directed and produced hundreds of our favorite episodes on a variety of TV shows.
David Giuntoli ‘98
Well known for his role as Detective Nick Burkhardt in the NBC TV series Grimm, which aired from 2011 to 2017, he currently stars as Eddie Saville in the ABC hit series A Million Little Things.
Sean Gunn ‘92
One of the most popular shows of the early 2000’s was the critically acclaimed series The Gilmore Girls. Sean Gunn starred as the quirky character Kirk Gleason. This is a great nostalgia-binge for alumni who graduated in that era.
Jim Berger '74
Chairman and Co-Founder of High Noon Entertainment, one of America’s most prolific production companies, with 15 series and 25 pilots in production across major networks and platforms. Some of his credits include HGTV’s Fixer Upper and Flip or Flop: Vegas, TLC’S Cake Boss, Discovery’s Dude, You’re Screwed, Netflix’s Battlbox and Facebook’s Von Miller’s Studio 58.
