Dan Sterling is an American screenwriter and television producer who has worked on many successful television shows, including King of the Hill, Kitchen Confidential, The Daily Show, South Park, The Sarah Silverman Program and The Office.
Sterling's recent work, The Interview, became famous after it was seen as an act of war by the supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Kim Jong-un. The Guardians of the Peace made terrorist threats of "a 9/11 style attack" against cinemas who planned to screen the film, and also threatened the safety of Sony Pictures employees and their families. As a result of these threats, Sony Pictures initially cancelled the release of The Interview, though it was later given a limited theatrical release, with broad digital release online through a Sony website, Google Play, Microsoft's Xbox Video, and YouTube Movies.
