The Toledo Museum of Art is hosting a conversation with television writer, director, and producer Eric Kripke on Saturday, March 16 at 1 p.m. This free event will take place in the Peristyle.

Kripke will share stories of his creative inspirations growing up in Toledo as well as behind-the-scenes accounts of his successful work in the television and motion picture industry with WGTE producer and on-air host Haley Taylor.

Kripke created the hit series Supernatural, which is about two brothers' personal battle against demons, poltergeists, and other phenomena, and served as the show’s primary showrunner for its first five seasons. Supernatural currently airs on The CW Network and is now in its fourteenth season, earning the title of longest running sci-fi series in American history. In addition to Supernatural, he created the television series Revolution and Timeless, both of which aired on NBC. Kripke also wrote and produced the 2018 hit feature The House with a Clock in Its Walls.

He will show clips and outtakes from Supernatural, many of which feature Toledo references, as well as an exclusive preview of his forthcoming series The Boys for Amazon Studio.

Kripke graduated from Sylvania Southview High School in 1992 and from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts in 1996.
