Comics, Superheroes, Disney Channel, need we say more? Join three of our alumni, Mark Edens (‘79), Michael Edens (’73, ‘78), and Eric Lewald (‘76), as they share how they went from UT Knoxville to Hollywood.

These three alumni have made a name for themselves in the TV, film, and comic industry as they have worked on nearly a hundred different projects including names such as X-Men, Disney Channel Original Movies, BeetleJuice, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more.

Join us as they share their stories, insights, and careers about writing for television and their experiences in the industry.
