We Always Knew an Extra on ‘Full House’ Could Make It in This Biz

There’s nothing like D.J. introducing her pops, Danny Tanner, to bring back memories of those Friday nights we’d be rushing back on our bikes to watch ABC’s TGIF lineup in the late 80′s (props to you, Balki). Besides dating myself a bit, that young chap you see clapping for Bob Saget is none other than Derek Richmond, who was named director of integrated production at 180LA this week.

While we’re pretty sure his stirring Full House moment had plenty to do with his ad career, Richmond has some agency background on his resume, working as director of digital production at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners–where he spent over four years–and was a key part of the team that developed the “Now Network” rebranding effort for Sprint. Now at 180LA, Richmond will work alongside Peter Cline, head of production and managing partner. But can the new hire tell us what the hell happened to Dave Coulier?
