Marti Noxon is a television and film writer perhaps best known for her work as a writer and executive producer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
When the WB television network accepted the Angel series, Joss Whedon, the creator and executive producer of both series, promoted Noxon from writer to executive producer and gave her increasing charge of producing Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Noxon joined the Buffy the Vampire Slayer writing staff in the second season, and wrote a 23 episodes over the course of the series. Several of her episodes became fan favorites, including "What's My Line, Part One", "What's My Line, Part Two", "I Only Have Eyes for You" and "The Wish".
Noxon was a story editor (1997-1998), co-producer (1998-1999), supervising producer (1999-2000), co-executive producer (2000-2001) and executive producer (2001-2003) on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as well as the director of two episodes: "Into the Woods" and "Forever".
Noxon also appeared on the show as the aptly named "Parking Ticket Woman", who sings about a parking ticket she has received in "Once More, with Feeling", reprising the role in "Selfless", now singing with a neighbor (played by David Fury, also reprising his role from "Once More With Feeling") about his mustard-stained shirt. She sang the theme tune for the Cordy show in the Angel episode "Birthday" where she also appeared in a cameo as Cordelia's friend.
Noxon has gone on to work as a writer and producer for the series Point Pleasant, Grey's Anatomy, Prison Break, Private Practice, Mad Men, Glee, and UnREAL.
