Nev Schulman is an American producer, photographer and television host. He is best known for the 2010 documentary film Catfish and the follow-up MTV series Catfish: The TV Show, of which he is the host and executive producer. 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. In 2014, Schulman published his first book, In Real Life: Love, Lies & Identity in the Digital Age, in which he gives both 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 and older brother Rel 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, 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 two hundred fifty million views.
