D.B. 'Dan' Weiss is an American novelist and scriptwriter. His debut novel Lucky Wander Boy attracted favorable reviews on its release in 2002. He has written a number of unproduced film screenplays, including adaptations of the Halo computer game series and of the novel Ender's Game. He is also working on the I Am Legend prequel movie. He is a long-time friend and occasional collaborator of David Benioff.

Benioff asked Weiss to develop the Game of Thrones project with him for HBO. On 16 January 2007 HBO optioned the rights to the books and the two writers began developing the project as a pilot script. The two writers appeared with George R.R. Martin at an appearance on social networking site Second Life on 31 May 2007 to discuss the project with fans. On 9 September 2008 HBO exercised their option to buy the rights and ordered a pilot on 11 November, with Benioff and Weiss appointed as executive producers and showrunners of the project.

On Game of Thrones Weiss works as executive producer, showrunner and scriptwriter. Together with David Benioff he has written most of the episodes of the series to date. Starting with the third season, he will be co-directing episodes with Benioff.[1]
