Dead of Summer - Ian Goldberg

Ian Goldberg Executive Producer



Ian Goldberg’s screenwriting career started with a spec script of “The Sopranos” he wrote during his senior year at Emerson College. As a Jewish kid from South Carolina who had never even set foot in New Jersey, he was surprised (but thrilled!) when the script landed him in the Warner Brothers Writers Workshop in 2005. From there, he went on to write for shows including “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” “FlashForward” and “Once Upon a Time” where he first worked with Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. In 2013, Goldberg’s feature film script “The Autopsy of Jane Doe,” a psychological thriller (co-written with Richard Naing) was selected for The Black List and subsequently produced by IM Global with Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch in the lead roles, and directed by “Trollhunter” filmmaker Andre Ovredal. The film is scheduled for release in 2016. Most recently, Goldberg re-teamed with Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz to create “Dead of Summer,” an anthology TV series for Freeform which combines two of Goldberg’s favorite things (much to his shrink’s consternation) — summer camp and horror.
