Zachary Adam "Zack" Whedon (born August 14, 1979) is an American screenwriter and comic book writer. He graduated in 2002 with a film degree from Wesleyan University where he served as president of the Eclectic Society.

His first professional work in television was as a production assistant on his brother's series Angel.
Whedon joined the crew of the HBO western drama Deadwood as an assistant to executive producer David Milch for the first season in 2004.
