Star Biography

Nev Schulman is an American producer, photographer and TV host who is best known for the 2010 documentary film "Catfish." Currently, he is the host and executive producer of the follow up series "Catfish: The TV Show" on MTV. Aside from his impressive entertainment career, Schulman spends time supporting local organizations and charities in New York City and nationwide. He served on the youth board for the Canadian-based organization Leave Out Violence and hosted the annual Dance Against Cancer to support The American Cancer Society. In 2014, Schulman published his first book, "In Real Life: Love, Lies & Identity in the Digital Age," in which he details personal history and observations gleaned from his work on "Catfish." "Catfish" is more than just a popular TV series, but it is a commentary on our society today. It was because of Schulman that the phrase became so widely understood today and has since been added to The Merriam Webster Dictionary. Schulman and his wife, Laura Perlongo are parents of 2 and together host the Facebook series called "We Need to Talk." Additionally, Schulman and Laura have created series of socially focused videos online (around issues like parental leave and gender roles) which have garnered over 250 million views.
