Producer Aaron Spelling Dies at 83

Legendary producer Aaron Spelling, who ruled primetime television in the 1970s, and had a popularity resurgence in the 1990s, died today from a stroke at the age of 83. There was a time when Spelling could do no wrong for the ABC network, producing hit after hit, including The Mod Squad, Starsky & Hutch, Charlie's Angels, Hart to Hart, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island and Dynasty. Although he produced a handful of TV movies and theatrical films himself -- Boy in the Plastic Bubble, Mr. Mom, 'night Mother, and Soapdish, among them -- he was better known, of late, for the big screen remakes of his earlier hits -- most successfully Charlie's Angels. No doubt his TV hits will continued to provide fodder for big screen redos.
