Andrew Chambliss is an American television writer and producer.

He is well known for working on series such as Dollhouse, The Vampire Diaries, and was an executive producer on Once Upon a Time. He is currently the executive producer and showrunner of AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead alongside Ian Goldberg.


Chambliss began his career working as an assistant to the executive producers on Crossing Jordan and Heroes, after which he worked as a story editor on the short-lived 2007 remake of The Bionic Woman.

In 2009 he joined the writing staff of Joss Whedon's philosophical science-fiction series Dollhouse. His first script was the ninth episode of the first season, "A Spy in the House of Love". He continued to work on the show as a writer and story editor through the show's second season, for which he wrote four episodes, including the series finale.[1]

After the cancellation of Dollhouse, he wrote an episode of the Starz historical epic Spartacus: Blood and Sand before joining the staff of The Vampire Diaries on The CW.[1][2]

Chambliss is the main writer of the ninth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He said in an interview with Hero Complex, "'Buffy' is such a huge part of what made me want to become a writer, especially in television".[3]

In summer 2011, Chambliss joined the ABC fantasy series Once Upon a Time as a writer and co-producer.[4]
