Apatow

Apatow has been on a remarkable creative and commercial winning streak for the past decade and a half, scoring hits on the big and small screens while serving as a mentor and collaborator to a generation of comedy talents including frequent collaborators Seth Rogen, James Franco and Jonah Hill, as well as Lena Dunham (“Girls”) and Paul Rust (“Love”). He earned critical acclaim for his latest directorial effort, Pete Davidson’s semi-autographical dramedy “The King of Staten Island,” which he co-wrote with the “Saturday Night Live” star (and Dave Sirus), but the film’s pandemic-amended rollout plan for select theaters (mostly drive-ins), which had been stitched together at the last minute, was scrapped in favor for a full premium video-on-demand release. A strident voice of political-minded consciousness, he has remained highly active and opinionated on social media.
