If you grew up in the 1970s and 80s and watched TV, you owe a big debt to writer/producer Glen A. Larson.
He created series such as Alias Smith and Jones, Quincy, M.E., Magnum, P.I (co-created with Donald Bellisario), The Fall Guy, Knight Rider, Automan, Manimal, Buck Rogers and the original Battlestar Galactica. He also produced series such as The Six Million Dollar Man and The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries.
Mr. Larson seemingly defined American television in those periods.
He passed away Friday, November 14 at the age of 77 according to Variety.com.
Thank you, Mr. Larson, for the endless hours of fun and adventure.
