Biography[edit]

Screenwriting[edit]

Alexander Woo is best known for writing several episodes of the HBO drama series True Blood. In an interview, Woo describes the "True Blood" writing room: "Every writer's room is different. True Blood has a relatively small writing team, so the chemistry between the writers is crucial to the style and tone of the show. It's kind of like being on a jury, where you are sequestered together for long hours and many days and you figure things out together. Our team is a wonderful group of people, and even though the hours are long we all work really well and the hours just fly by."[1]

He has also written episodes of Sleeper Cell, LAX, and Wonderfalls. He is developing a series about Civil Rights in Birmingham, Alabama with AMC. [2]
