Spence landed the role of the misunderstood bully and jock, Dan Decker, in the Peacock original series "AP Bio," with comedians Glenn Howerton and Patton Oswalt. He starred in all but two episodes in the show's four seasons between 2018 and 2021.

In a video with creator Mike O'Brien, he said that people who know him didn't find him believable as a bully because he's not like that. O'Brien said that because of his hard work and charm, the one-dimensional bully in the pilot became one of the show's most beloved characters.

Concurrently he had significant character arcs in "All American," the reboot of "The Wonder Years," and the podcast series "Blackout" with Rami Malek.
