moved to Los Angeles in 1996 after graduating from the University of Michigan and began working a string of production assistant jobs. In his spare time, he wrote a spec script inspired by the Eighties films he grew up on and his high school days in East Grand Rapids, Michigan. Universal quickly snapped up the script and a year later, American Pie was a hit. Herz followed with the screenplay for American Pie 2, which proved to be a bigger hit than the original, and he now brings the characters he created into adulthood with American Wedding.
Herz recently made a deal with Universal Pictures to set up his own production shingle, Great Lakes Pictures, which will develop and produce films for the studio. The company will also be a haven for young and undiscovered writers, providing them a new door into Hollywood and a unique environment to strengthen their creative skills. Also, with the completion of the Pie series, Herz will write a new original comedy for Universal, which will mark his directorial debut.
