Peter Atencio is an Emmy-nominated director and producer of films, television shows and commercials. He recently served as the sole director and a co-executive producer of the Peabody Award-winning sketch show “Key and Peele,” which ran for five seasons on Comedy Central. The film “Keanu,” which reunited him with the comedy duo, marks his first major studio feature film.
Atencio has also directed episodes of a number of other series, including the FOX network hit sitcom “The Last Man on Earth,” starring Will Forte, and an upcoming Jean-Claude Van Damme series for Amazon, produced by Ridley Scott.
When he’s not writing bios in the third person, he enjoys experimenting with outdated video formats and napping with his cat.
