Suffering from the winter blues? Check out what these Penn alumni have been up to in entertainment and let their successes keep you warm with pride, jealousy, or a little bit of both.


Todd Lieberman (C ’95, Mask and Wig) is a big time Hollywood producer and Penntertainment favorite.  As a Hollywood hard-hitter (he has produced such hits as The FighterThe Muppets, and Warm Bodies), Todd was a judge for Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30.  Later in this post, check out the Penn alum he helped put on this list!



Tom Heller (C ’98) executive produced massive films like PUSH: Based on the Novel by Sapphire and 127 Hours. He was also an English major at Penn!

What People Are Saying

"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."
