Roger Nygard is perhaps best known for his acclaimed documentaries Trekkies and Trekkies 2, about the most obsessive fans in the Universe. Nygard has also directed TV series such as The Office and The Bernie Mac Show. His work as a film editor includes Grey’s Anatomy, The League, and Emmy-nominated episodes of Who Is America?, Veep, and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Nygard has made several award-winning films including the car-salesman cult-film Suckers, a docu-comedy about UFO fanatics in Six Days in Roswell, and the documentary The Nature of Existence, which untangles the world’s philosophies, religions, and belief systems. Next, Nygard tackled a subject even more inexplicable than existence itself: The Truth About Marriage. The film was accompanied by the similarly titled book, which gets to bottom of why relationships are so darn impossible for everybody. Nygard also co-produced and edited The Comedy Store, a documentary series about the world-famous LA club. And recently published is his book Cut to the Monkey, about making and editing hit comedy series. His latest (being published in August, 2024) is the ultimate go-to source for documentary filmmakers, The Documentarian.
