Penn Alumni You Should Know About: Vol. 10


It’s that time again for some more Penn Alumni You Should Know About!

These alums are so cool that it’s spooky. So grab some candy and enjoy this treat of a post. No tricks required.


Mark Cronin (ENG ’86) has created a new game show titled Mind of a Man for GSN. The show will feature two female contestants trying to figure out what men really think with the help of a celebrity panel. In other news, Cronin takes the cake as the Penn alum who is probably most proud of our “Party Ivy” title.

Alli Shearmur (C ’87) is currently producing The Thirteen, a drama that “rewrites American history”. It is about what would have happened in present-day America had we lost the war for Independence. The show will air on ABC. Sounds nerdy. Typical Penn.

Rob Golenberg (W ’87) has signed on to executive produce a new TNT drama titled “President X”. It will focus on a former president who wakes up after a year-long coma and is devoted to finding the person who tried to assassinate him. Hopefully there will be a sexy secret service character to keep the show interesting.

Josh Goldsmith (C ’93) is slated to co-write a new comedy on CBS titled More Time With Family. It will focus on comedian Tom Papa and his choice to end his life on the road and go back to living with his family, much to his immediate chagrin. The show will also be executive produced by lovers best friends Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference."
