Joss Whedon was born in 1964 in New York and is best known as a screenwriter and television creator. He is a third generation television writer, following his father and grandfather in the field.

Whedon moved to Los Angeles after he completed his studies at Wesleyan University. He began his writing career in the television industry by writing for the sitcom, Roseanne. From that job, he moved to work as a script doctor for a number of films.

In 1992, Whedon’s film, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, earned him industry recognition and commercial success. He would go on to use the film’s concept as the basis for the television show of the same name. The television version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer launched in 1997.

Buffy was followed by a spin-off series, Angel, and Whedon’s work developed a cult following. His next program, the short-lived space western, Firefly, and Serenity, the film based on the series, became known as cult classics. Whedon’s last television series, Dollhouse, aired for two seasons before being cancelled for low viewership.

Whedon’s devoted fan base has largely followed his work in a variety of media. He has also written successful comic books, including Fray. He created an online musical series, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, with two of his brothers.

Recently, Whedon has focused on films. He co-wrote the 2012 film The Cabin in the Woods with Drew Goddard. He also wrote and directed the 2012 film adaptation of The Avengers, for which he has had significant praise from audiences, critics, and the film industry.
