About the 90th Anniversary Alumni Conversations Series

In celebration of the 90th Anniversary of the School of Cinematic Arts, SCA alumni will lead conversations on stage with fellow alumni whose work they admire or whose careers have inspired them. Anniversary events will include Q&As with the audience, and on occasion, screenings of a favorite feature film, TV show, or student short. The series will celebrate the incredible history of the School through our diverse alumni community, in order to foster unique and entertaining dialogues that will bring alumni back to campus throughout the year.

Segal has worked with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood, including Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, and Dwayne Johnson in the big screen adaptation of Mel Brooks and Buck Henry’s legendary television series Get Smart. The film went on to gross $231 million, and became Segal’s fifth consecutive movie to gross over $100 million domestically.

Segal made three back to back hits with Adam Sandler, including 50 First Dates, with Drew Barrymore, Anger Management, with Jack Nicholson, and The Longest Yard, with Chris Rock - currently the highest-grossing comedy remake of all time and the second-highest grossing sports comedy in history. In 2018 he completed his tenth film, Second Act, the holiday sleeper hit comedy starring Jennifer Lopez, Milo Ventimiglia and Vanessa Hudgens, and later this year he will be coming out with his second movie in a row for STX Productions, the action/comedy My Spy, starring Dave Bautista, Kristen Schaal and Ken Jeong.

Segal made his feature film directorial debut in 1994 with Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult, starring Leslie Nielsen, and went on to direct the late Chris Farley in the comedy classic, Tommy Boy, the following year. His other feature credits include the 2000 blockbuster comedy Nutty Professor: The Klumps, starring Eddie Murphy and Janet Jackson, the critically acclaimed My Fellow Americans, starring screen legends Jack Lemmon, James Garner and Lauren Bacall, and the 2013 comedy, Grudge Match, starring Robert DeNiro, Sylvester Stallone and Kevin Hart.

A graduate of the University of Southern California, Segal began his career writing and directing television, and created the hit comedy Hidden Hills for NBC, which ran following Frasier.  He earned eight Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, a Cable ACE award for Best Director, two National Association of Broadcasters’ Service to Children Awards, and two Teen Choice Awards for Best Summer Comedy with Get Smart, and Choice Date Movie with 50 First Dates. Two of his films have been nominated for People’s Choice Awards as Favorite Movie Comedy – Nutty Professor: The Klumps, and Get Smart.
