Mini Biography

Drew Goddard was raised in Los Alamos, New Mexico. He attended the University of Colorado, and worked as a production assistant in L.A. after graduation. A spec script Drew wrote based on "Six Feet Under" (2001) came to the attention of both Marti Noxon at "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997) and David Greenwalt at "Angel" (1999). Both wanted him but because Marti found him first, Joss Whedon determined Drew would go to "Buffy". He became a staff writer for Season 7 (2002-2003), writing five episodes. Once "Buffy" was over, Drew moved over to "Angel" and became the executive story editor for Season 5 (2003-2004), writing four episodes. Drew also found time to write the introduction for a book of essays about Buffy, "Seven Seasons of Buffy", and to contribute two stories to the "Tales of the Vampires" comic series. In the summer of 2003, Drew received his first screenwriting award, along with co-writer Jane Espenson, when the Hugos honored "Conversations with Dead People" from "Buffy" with an award for Best Dramatic Presentation/Short Form. That episode was also honored with a SyFy Portal Genre Award for Best Episode/Television; another of Drew’s "Buffy" episodes, "Lies My Parents Told Me" (co-written with David Fury), was nominated for the same award. IMDb Mini Biography By: Dachelle


Drew Goddard only wrote for cult series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997) for one season (the show’s seventh, and final, year) but in that short time he accumulated a truly staggering number of "minions" in the (notoriously fanatical) on-line Buffy fan community. Websites were set up exclusively to promote Drew, t-shirts were printed (in English and Swedish) and Drew himself made semi-frequent visits to Buffy websites and message boards.

Had a relationship with actress Jenny Mollen. They share two dogs [2003-2007].

He is fairly good at games such as Monopoly, Risk, Racko and Uno, but is arguably sub-par at the card game Hearts.

Where Are They Now

(January 2004) Made the successful transition from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer writing staff to that of it’s sister show, Angel (for the latter show’s fifth season.) As of the start of 2004 he has written two episodes with more planned for later in the year.
