D.B.
Weiss

Writer / Producer

Weiss and producing partner David Benioff have been busy at work on the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones,” the megahit HBO awards magnet they adapted from the classic George R.R. Martin novels. But afterward, they’ll be no less busy, as the two were tapped this year to create a new “Star Wars” trilogy. Weiss and Benioff’s other post–”Game of Thrones” project, the controversial HBO series “Confederate” — which imagines if the South had won the Civil War — is still officially in the works, though their “Star Wars” commitment may impact its future. Weiss earned his master’s of philosophy in Irish literature from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, and a master’s of fine arts in creative writing from the esteemed Iowa Writers’ Workshop.
