| Screenwriter Joss Whedon earned fame and industry standing as the writer, director, and producer of the popular WB series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which he based on his 1992 film of the same name. A third-generation television writer (both his father and grandfather wrote for the medium), Whedon grew up in Manhattan and spent his high-school years at an all-boys school in England. Following higher education at Connecticut's Wesleyan University, he spent a year mired in creative and career frustration, an ordeal that ended when he was hired as a writer for the sitcom Roseanne.Whedon stayed with the show for a year, quitting when he sold his first film script. The resulting movie, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992), was a disappointment, and Whedon subsequently found work writing (often in an uncredited capacity) for a number of high-profile films, including the lavishly praised and hugely popular Toy Story (1995). In 1997, Whedon resurrected his story of a teen-aged vampire-slaying valley girl, creating the much more popular TV version; within a short time, the series was hailed as one of the best on television, and it had accumulated a large and loyal fan base. That same year, Whedon wrote the script for Alien: Resurrection. In 1999, as a measure of Buffy's success, Whedon created Angel, a spin-off of his original show. Like Buffy, it soon boasted a loyal fan base, as well as largely favorable reviews. The next year, he co-wrote the script for the animated sci-fi adventure Titan A.E. He was also nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series for the almost entirely silent Buffy episode "Hush," a considerable achievement given the show's supernatural/fantasy bent and the fact that it did not air on a major network.In 2002, Whedon created yet another TV series, this time a "sci-fi Western" called Firefly. The showed was short-lived, lasting only 12 episodes before being canceled (three more episodes were unaired but eventually released on DVD). The next year saw the final season of Whedon's much-loved Buffy, which had lasted seven seasons, with Angel quick to follow suit. Though fans rallied to keep the series on the air, Angel was canceled in 2004 after five seasons. With fans mourning the end of the "Buffy-verse" and amidst rampant speculation of more spin-offs, Whedon surprisingly announced that his next project would be a movie version of his failed television show Firefly. He quickly had a script ready, and the film, entitled Serenity (after the spaceship from the series), went into production that same year, with plans for release in 2005.
- Attended and graduated from Wesleyan University in 1987.
- Joss Whedon's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997) episode "Hush" was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2000 for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series.

- Son of Tom Whedon
- Grandson of John Whedon
- Whedon is married and resides in Los Angeles.
- Writing is clearly in his blood, since he could arguably be the world's first third-generation television writer. His grandfather was a successful sitcom writer n the 50s and 60s on "The Donna Reed Show" (1958) and "Leave It to Beaver" (1957), and his father wrote for the likes of "The Dick Cavett Show" (1969), "Alice" (1976) and "Benson" (1979).

- Has said that he created Buffy (of the vampire slaying fame) to be an "alternative feminist icon".
- Was asked to revise the script for X-Men (2000), and reportedly decided the whole script needed to be totally rewritten, when he handed the studio this draft, they apparently threw it out, they only really wanted him to add a couple jokes here and there.
- Lived in the UK for 3 years, from 1980-2, attending Winchester College in Hampshire, where he took his A levels. The character of Rupert Giles is mistakenly thought to be based on a history teacher there, Dr. Peter Cramer. Dr. Cramer's arrival at the College post-dates Whedon's departure. The character was named in tribute to his House Matron: Barbara Giles.
- Whedon and Cole can be heard doing a demo track for the wildly popular episode "Once More With Feeling" on the episode soundtrack. It was recorded in the front hall of their home.

- Wrote Angel's comic book tie-in mini-series with comic book writer Brett Matthews called "Angel: Long Night's Journey." Just as Buffy comic book spin- off FRAY, this comic book mini-series had series of delays because of Joss's committments to Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Fray.
- Wrote three vignettes for Buffy's "Tale of the Slayers" graphic novel, along with Buffy cast Amber Benson, "Smallville" (2001) consulting producer Jeph Leob, and other Buffy TV and comic writers: In the book, Joss wrote about the origin of The First Slayer, the death of a slayer from the medieval period, and his futuristic slayer Melaka Fray's discovery of an abandoned New York branch of the Watcher Council Headquarter.
