Biography

Screenwriting

Alexander Woo is best known for writing several episodes of the HBO drama series True Blood. In an interview, Woo describes the "True Blood" writing room: "Every writer's room is different. True Blood has a relatively small writing team, so the chemistry between the writers is crucial to the style and tone of the show. It's kind of like being on a jury, where you are sequestered together for long hours and many days and you figure things out together. Our team is a wonderful group of people, and even though the hours are long we all work really well and the hours just fly by."[1]

He has also written episodes of Sleeper Cell, LAX, and Wonderfalls.

Education

Woo studied creative writing at Princeton University. He subsequently attended the Yale School of Drama where he earned an MFA in playwriting.[2]
