Born June 23, 1964, in New York City, Whedon made a name for himself in the industry as the writer, director and producer of the hit WB series the Vampire Slayer (1997-2001). Instantly becoming audiences' favorite, the show spurred him on to create the Buffy spin-off titled Angel (The WB, 1999-2004). Since, he has become the man behind other TV series like Firefly (2002–2003), Dollhouse (2009–2010), and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013), as well as Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog (2008). Even though his latter series were not as popular as his first two shows with a cult following, Whedon continued to work on smash-hit movies such as 2005′s sci-fi adventure Serenity (as a co-writer), 2011′s horror film The Cabin in the Woods (as a co-writer), as well as 2012′s action movie The Avengers (as a writer and producer). The last of the three became the third highest-grossing film of all time and cemented Whedon's status even more among leading filmmakers in Hollywood. What's more, he served as the founder Mutant Enemy Productions and co-founder of Bellwether Pictures. Since many of his projects enjoy cult status and are award-worthy, including his 1995′s computer-animated megahit Toy Story, Whedon was honored with Doctorate of Letters from Wesleyan University in May, 2003. Through his work, he even met his wife, Kai Cole, who is the producer and co-founder of Bellwether Pictures. The couple has 2 children together.
