3 Penn alumni work together on tonight's "Royal Pains" season finale

UPenn and Royal Pains
(l to r: Michael Sluchan, C'91, Michael Rauch, C'90)
There is no question that Penn alumni are working together all over the entertainment business (and there have been plenty of DT stories about this).

Here's another goodie sent to me by USA network executive Michael Sluchan (C'93). Not only did Michael Sluchan help develop and now oversees "Royal Pains", but he also works on the show with another Penn alum, executive producer Michael Rauch (C'90).

And on tonight's season finale, a third Penn alum you all know joins them.

After the jump, more about who, his featured song on the show ...and about executive producer Michael Rauch's writing path from Penn and beyond.

This Penn Alum is pitching her reality show to Project Runway Producers

Jess Garvey and UPenn

A few months ago we introduced you to Jess Garvey (C'09), DT's "Starter Reality Star".

In the last episode, Jess brought us to her manager's office as they planned for pilot season.

Well since that meeting, Jess has been keeping quite busy!:  She's booked a national commercial, will be starring in a Funny or Die short and auditioned for another successful Penn alum's pilot.

Plus she is pitching her reality show to Project Runway producers!

After the jump, watch Jess's next episode and read a special, somewhat cryptic note from Jess herself.
