Zach Braff's dad loved movies, it was perhaps inevitable that after the success of his TV series 'Scrubs' that he'd turn to film. His debut, 'Garden State' had a killer soundtrack. His first album was by Sheena Easton; his first concert? Rush at MSG.

You probably know Zach Braff from his work on the television series 'Scrubs' which ran from 2001 to 2010 (nine seasons); and his 2004 movie 'Garden State', which he wrote, directed and co-starred in. The film, which was based on Zach's real life experiences, received positive reviews and won a grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack album for a Motion Picture Television or other visual media. The soundtrack also elevated the careers of many of the artists featured, most notably, 'The Shins'. Since then Zach has been beyond busy with all sorts of cool projects. He has executive produced documentaries, including 'The Internets Own Boy: the Story of Aaron Swartz', he’s directed several music videos, done voice work for movies and video games, (most notably the titular character in the film 'Chicken Little' and it’s spin off video games). He’s worked in theater, both as an actor and writer, and as we recorded this convesation in late January 2023, Zach is readying the release of his new film 'A Good Person’ starring Morgan Freeman and Florence Pugh, which he wrote, directed, and produced.
