At last year’s Emmys, first-time nominee Joey King celebrated her work on the Hulu limited series, The Act. The eight-episode project saw King take on the role of Gypsy Rose Blanchard, who was convicted of murdering her mother Dee Dee (played in the series by Patricia Arquette) in a high-profile true crime story.

In addition to awards acclaim, the series has brought something else to King’s life. Following the series’ release, she was spotted on a potential date with The Act producer Steven Piet. Here’s some things to know about the up-and-coming exec.

The rumors about him and King started last year

Last year, King and the co-executive producer were spotted at a Cinespia screening of Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets. The pair was seen getting cozy alongside King’s two sisters, Hunter and Kelli, and their dates. An onlooker told E! News, “They were very affectionate and were with her two sisters sitting watching the movie together. Joey and Steven cuddled the entire time and looked very happy together. They had snacks and drinks and were laughing with her sisters.”

King shared photos from the evening to Instagram, although they conveniently exclude any signs of Piet.

Piet is also a writer-director

In addition to producing The Act, Piet also directed two key episodes of the drama. He helmed the show’s finale, titled, “Free,” as well as episode five, “Plan B.” King even managed to highlight the fifth episode on Instagram, captioning a production still, “Episode 5 is here, and it’s one of my absolute favorites. @theactonhulu.”

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Piet opened up about his experience working with the cast of The Act, including King. He said, “I felt like my job was to step back as much as I could, and just have the camera in the right place and let these amazing actors do what they do best… At times, I was so lost in their performances that I was forgetting to say ‘Cut.'”

Piet’s other credits include co-writing and directing the 2015 indie Uncle John, which debuted at SXSW Film Festival, and his work on the Syfy series’ Channel Zero and Nightflyers.

He’s originally from Chicago

In February, Deadline reported on a first-look deal Piet signed with Universal Content Productions to develop scripted programming. The piece notes Piet’s background as a Chicago native and film graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Piet and King have kept their possible romance off social media

Piet doesn’t have much of a Twitter or Instagram presence. Unlike King’s previous relationship with The Kissing Booth co-star Jacob Elordi (spotted on vacation recently with his Euphoria co-star Zendaya), she’s kept photos of the two off the ‘gram.
