Biography

Co-writer of the acclaimed indie success "(500) Days of Summer" (2009), Michael H. Weber began his entertainment career as Robert De Niro's right-hand man before a creative partnership with Scott Neustadter made him one of the most-watched new screenwriters in Hollywood. The duo's official film debut credit was "The Pink Panther 2" (2009), but it was their sharp ear for dialogue and dedication to shining a light on the nuanced messiness of unreciprocated love in "(500) Days of Summer" that brought name recognition. Admired for their ability to break free from comedy clichés and broadly drawn, shiny Hollywood characters, Neustadter and Weber sold half a dozen more scripts in quick succession and were approached to develop their own series, so hungry was Hollywood for the stripped-down, relatable relationship stories that became the writing team's calling card.
