Jed Tucker Whedon (born July 18, 1974) is a screenwriter and musician. Jed is from a family of writers: he is the son of screenwriter Tom Whedon, grandson of screenwriter John Whedon, and the brother of screenwriter Zack Whedon and producer/director/writer Joss Whedon. On April 19, 2009, he married fellow screenwriter Maurissa Tancharoen.
Alongside his brothers Joss and Zack and his then fiancée Maurissa Tancharoen, he co-created and co-wrote the musical Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. It was the subject of a salute by The Paley Center for Media and won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class – Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Programs.
Prior to Dr. Horrible, Jed composed scores for video games, and was a member of the now defunct Los Angeles-based band The Southland. In 2010, he released an album entitled History of Forgotten Things under the band name "Jed Whedon and the Willing". Assisting him on the album were his wife, Maurissa Tancharoen and their mutual friend Felicia Day.
He and his wife Maurissa were staff writers on Dollhouse, the Fox series created by his older brother Joss, prior to its cancellation. They have since joined the staffs of Spartacus: Blood and Sand, co-created by former Mutant Enemy writer Steven S. DeKnight, and Drop Dead Diva.
