The Peabody Media Center and the Peabody Student Honor Board will host “An Evening with American Vandals” at 7 p.m. on Oct. 4 at the Tate Student Center Theater. Following a screening of an episode from the second season of American Vandal, creators of the Netflix Original Series will participate in a question-and-answer session. The event is free and open to the public. The Peabody Media Center is based at UGA’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
The first season of American Vandal, a true-crime parody set in a California high school, was honored with a Peabody Award earlier this year for providing “an unexpectedly profound lesson of what is unearthed when a quest for the truth loses its way.” Tony Yacenda, co-creator, and Ari Lubet, executive producer, will be on hand to discuss the creative process.
