Jul 30 2020 - 3:32pm

Although the pair was first romantically linked back in September 2019 [1], Joey King [2] and Steven Piet's low-key romance has us wondering exactly who he is. There have only been a few glimpses into their relationship, including their trips together and themed social-distancing days [3] like "Tiki Tuesday" and "Santa Saturday." With the release of Joey's movie The Kissing Booth 2 [4] and her appearances with costars Taylor Zakhar Perez [5] and Joel Courtney [6], people want to know more about the mysterious Steven. Here's what we know!

He Met Joey King on the Set of Hulu's The Act

While Steven was a co-executive producer for the entire series, he also directed episodes five and eight (titled "Plan B" and "Free") of The Act. On the show, Joey starred as Gypsy Rose Blanchard [8], a woman who suffers Munchausen by proxy at the hands of her mother and rebels with violent results.

He Went to School For Film

The Chicago native attended Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). After graduating, he started out as an assistant editor [9] before moving into advertising. He worked for four years before he had enough money to create his film Uncle John and premiere it at SXSW in 2015.

He's a Director/Producer

Since Uncle John, Steven has directed episodes of SyFy's Channel Zero (2017), Hulu's The Act (2019), and Briarpatch (2019-2020). He was a consulting producer for 2018's Nightflyer and a co-executive producer for both The Act and Briarpatch.

He's Frequently Collaborated With Erik Crary

Steven considers Erik his best friend [10] and worked with him on Uncle John. Erik also produced while Steven directed Channel Zero, and they both worked on Nightflyers, The Act, and Briarpatch. In 2019, the pair signed a deal [11] with Universal Content Productions to develop content.
