3rd gen Joss
Did you know that Joss Whedon (Buffy, Serenity, X-men, more) is a 3rd generation television writer?
Joss Whedon, writer, director, producer, composer and sometimes actor, is perhaps the world's first third-generation television writer. His grandfather, John Whedon, was a successful sitcom writer in the 50s and 60s on The Donna Reed Show (1958) and Leave It to Beaver (1957), and his father, Tom Whedon, wrote for The Dick Cavett Show (1969), Alice (1976) and Benson (1979).
You really have to know somewhere to get anywhere in the creative industry...I just learned that CNN's Anderson Cooper is Gloria Vanderbilts son! It's a week of relative revelations for me.
