JEREMY GARELICK

Founder of American High, Writer, Director, Producer

Through impactful storytelling, creative integrity and commercial appeal, Jeremy Garelick has become an industry leader, creating some of the most successful comedies ever.

Jeremy started in the mailroom at the Creative Artists Agency, before going on to work as assistant to legendary writer/director, Joel Schumacher on TigerlandBad Company, Phone Booth, and Veronica Guerin.

Jeremy made his feature screenplay debut with the Vince Vaughn vehicle The Break-Up and followed that by teaming up with Todd Phillips to pen the production draft of The Hangover, establishing himself as the go-to A-list comedy writer in Hollywood. In 2015 Jeremy directed his first feature film, The Wedding Ringer starring Kevin Hart and Josh Gad.

The last year has been a busy one for Jeremy. Between writing, directing, and show running his Netflix original limited series, Best. Worst. Weekend. Ever., and executive producing his YouTube Red original, Side Swiped, Jeremy also formed his own production company, American High. Staked with a $45 million film fund, American High has shot five indie comedies in Garelick’s recently acquired school-turned-studio in Syracuse, NY, including Big Time Adolescence, starring Pete Davidson, Jon Cryer, and Sydney Sweeney, which was recently invited to compete in dramatic competition at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

The company plans to shoot five more indie films in 2019. In addition, Jeremy will direct and produce a slate of three higher budget high school comedy features, also through his production company, American High. The projects will be shot simultaneously in Syracuse, New York, starting in the summer of 2019.
