GENE STEPNITSKY | WRITER & DIRECTOR
Comedy happens...especially when the characters in a story are allowed to operate outside the boundaries of advisable behavior. Writers Guild Award winner and six-time Emmy Award nominee Gene Stupnitsky gives his creations exceptional license, with hilarious results. Gene got his start on the NBC comedy series, THE OFFICE, producing, directing and writing for five seasons, eventually rising to co-head writer. His episode, “Dinner Party,” was ranked “the best comedic half-hour of the decade” by Rolling Stone magazine. Since then, Gene has executive produced the Golden Globe-nominated series, SMILF, and co-created the Emmy-nominated HBO series, HELLO LADIES. On the feature front, he co-wrote and executive produced BAD TEACHER starring Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel and Justin Timberlake, and co-wrote and directed the box office smash GOOD BOYS for Universal.
At VANDAL, Gene brings his nerd-errific comedic voice to branded content, opening the door to a whole new world of memorable characters.
