‘Outer Banks’ creator Jonas Pate will speak at Charleston Library Society

The Charleston Library Society will welcome Jonas Pate, one of the creators of hit Netflix series “Outer Banks,” which was filmed in the Lowcountry.

Pate will take part in a speaker series from 6-7 p.m. Oct. 21. He’ll discuss what it’s like to film in Charleston, have a career as a filmmaker and meet the challenges that emerge when creating a new show.

Though they grew up in the North Carolina Outer Banks, Pate and twin brother Josh spent a lot of time in Charleston during their youth, since their parents owned S.N.O.B., High Cotton and a number of other local restaurants.

In addition to “Outer Banks,” Pate wrote and directed “The Grave,” “Deceiver,” and “The Take.” He co-created “Good vs. Evil” and “Surface.”

“Outer Banks” has won a People’s Choice Award for most binge-worthy show, and Season 2 streams hit a staggering high with 2.1 billion minutes watched within a week in August.

Limited tickets to the conversation with Pate are $10 for Charleston Library Society members and $15 for nonmembers. They can be purchased at charlestonlibrarysociety.org/event/speaker-series-jonas-pate or by calling 843-723-9912.
