AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Spotlight On edition, is a long form interview series featuring Actors and TV personalities discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Stephen Lemieux interviews Jason Hervey.
Hervey was born in Los Angeles, the son of Marsha, a talent agent, and Alan Hervey, a retail sales manager. In his early career, Hervey had small parts in films including Back to the Future and Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and Meatballs Part II, and was a recurring character in the final season of Diff’rent Strokes. His big break came as a cast member of the successful family drama The Wonder Years, as the older brother of Fred Savage‘s character. He ranked at #71 on VH1‘s 100 Greatest Kid Stars for the role.
After a guest appearance on World Championship Wrestling television during his tenure on The Wonder Years, Hervey obtained a backstage position as an executive producer for WCW, which he held until the company’s closure in 2001. During this time, he became friends with then-WCW Vice President Eric Bischoff, with whom he formed Bischoff/Hervey Productions. Their company has produced several sports and reality television shows, including I Want to Be a Hilton, Scott Baio Is 45…and Single, and Hulk Hogan‘s Celebrity Championship Wrestling, alongside Hogan. When Bischoff joined Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) in January 2010, Hervey also joined the promotion as an executive producer. He co-created the reality show TNA Reaction. Hervey appeared in a backstage segment with Eric Young on the June 16, 2011, edition of Impact Wrestling which was his last appearance.
