Aaron Spelling

spelling1April 22, 1923 – June 23, 2006

The most prolific American television writer/producer ever, Aaron Spelling was directly responsible for hits, both major (Charlie’s Angels, The Mod Squad, Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, The Love Boat, Hart to Hart, Charmed, Starsky & Hutch, The Rookies, 7th Heaven, Fantasy Island, Dynasty) and minor (The Heights, Models Inc., Pacific Palisades, Summerland, Tori Spelling.) His career spanned decades and influenced generations. In the end, Spelling produced more than 200 shows. More than anyone else in the history of television…by a WIDE margin. Despite amassing fame, success and the largest single-family home in all of Los Angeles, Spelling suffered a major stroke at the age of 83 and died a week later. It can be debated what the legacy of the substance of the shows he created might be, but it can’t be debated that the impact they had on popular culture was enormous.
