Kevin Meade Williamson (created March 14, 1965) is an American screenwriter, producer, director, and performer, best known as the inventor of the TV series “Dawson’s Creek” (1998–2003), “The Vampire Diaries” (2009–present), and “The Following” (2013–current). He’s also widely known for developing and writing the screenplay for the slasher film “Scream”, along with the sequels “Scream 2” and “Scream 4”.
Paul Stupin, an executive at Columbia TriStar Television, read Scream following the bidding war for the script and was convinced Williamson was only the guy to produce a television series because of his business. The end result was Dawson’s Creek, a semi autobiographical story set in a tiny coastal community not unlike Oriental. Williamson was the model for the title character, Dawson Leery, a hopeless romantic who’s obsessed with films—particularly those of Steven Spielberg. Joey Potter, the platonic girl-next door, was based on a real-life friend of Williamson’s when he was young. Subsequently in 1996, Stupin and Williamson went to, and reached a deal with, The WB. Dawson’s Creek premiered on The WB on January 20, 1998, and was an instant success that helped start the newly created television network. In 1999, Williamson left the show to concentrate on additional efforts, among them ABC’s Wasteland, which failed to attract a substantial audience and was canceled after its thirteen-episode first season. He afterwards returned to Dawson’s Creek to write the two-part series finale in 2003.
