David Rambo (born 1955) is a writer, playwright, actor and producer.

He grew up in Spring City, Pennsylvania. His grandmother and mother were librarians which helped develop his lifelong interest in literature and art.

After moving to Los Angeles to become an actor, Rambo started working in the real estate business. He would afterwards begin a career on theatre, first acting and then writing and adapting plays.

In 2004 he wrote his first script for a television show, an episode for the American crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation entitled Butterflied. Butterflied aired on January of that year and it was the highest rated TV program of the week. Rambo would then join the CSI writing team, creating episodes like Who Shot Sherlock?, Kiss-Kiss, Bye-Bye and Still Life. He is now a supervising producer of the show. In 2006, Rambo wrote "The Lady With All the Answers", a play about the life and work of "Eppie" Lederer, better known as Ann Landers. The play has been widely produced across the country. An off-Broadway production starring Judith Ivey opened October 14, 2009 at the Cherry Lane Theatre.

Outside of work in the entertainment field, David is a distinguished guest speaker at Hampshire College and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, the latter awarding David with an Honorary Doctorate at their 2012 Graduation Ceremony. In 2010 the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra recruited Rambo to curate a special concert, citing Rambo's previous collaboration adapting Sunset Boulevard with John Mauceri for a special performance at the Hollywood Bowl.[1]

Rambo left 'CSI' in 2010, accepting the opportunity to write for the ABC revival of 'V.' The following year, in the fall of 2011, Rambo joined the writing staff on the CBS show The 2-2, returning to his roots in New York City. Following the show's season run, Bad Robot Productions recruited Rambo to serve on the writing and producing staff for the NBC series Revolution, currently nearing the end of its second season.

David lives in Los Angeles with his spouse Theodore Heyck, an actor and lawyer. David is a member of the Dramatists Guild, ASCAP, and Writers Guild of America, West.
