Description
From the cult favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer , which netted four million viewers per episode, to the summer blockbuster The Avengers , which amassed a box office of $1.5 billion, Joss Whedon has made a name for himself in Hollywood for his penchant for telling meaningful, personal tales about love, death, and redemption even against the most dramatic and larger-than-life backdrops. This biography follows his development from a creative child and teenager who spent years away from his family at an elite English public school, through his early successes--which often turned into frustrating heartbreak in both television ( Roseanne ) and film (Buffy the Vampire Slayer )--to his breakout turn as the creator, writer, and director of the Buffy television series. Extensive, original interviews with Whedon's family, friends, collaborators, and stars--and with the man himself--offer candid, behind-the-scenes accounts of the making of groundbreaking series such as Buffy , Angel , Firefly , and Dollhouse , as well as new stories about his work with Pixar writers and animators during the creation of Toy Story . Most importantly, however, these conversations present an intimate and revealing portrait of a man whose creativity and storytelling ability have manifested themselves in comics, online media, television, and film.
