Penn Alumni You Should Know About: Vol. 19



Mark Cronin (SEAS’86, Mask and Wig) and his assistant Kelly Diamond (C’13, Classless TV, Friars) (that’s me!) premiered “Idiot Test”, their new art-based brain teaser show on Game Show Network. Tune in to keep our ratings strong and keep me employed every Tuesday night at 9/8c. And also be sure to check out Season 2 of Mark’s Bravo show “Below Deck”, which is in the same time slot. But we all have multiple TVs at this point so just watch ’em both at once, ok?


Idiot Test


After producing and directing Pitch Perfect 2 this summer, Elizabeth Banks (C’96, TriDelt, Friars) is at it again. , She and husband/producing partner Max Handelman (C’95, AEPi) are currently executive producing a new comedy series titled “Resident Advisors”, which is set in a college dorm and follows a group of RA’s through their ups and downs in midterms, partying, and love. Think Max and Liz will draw from their experiences at Penn? Here’s hoping!



Emma Frisch (C’06, PennQuest) is on a mission in the kitchen. The food lover competed this summer on Food Network’s “Food Network Star”. Follow Emma’s exploits on her blog and check her out as she takes on different culinary challenges across the country, all while on national television!
