We’re sad to learn that executive/producer Leonard Goldberg has passed away at the age of 85. Goldberg began his career in the research departments at ABC and NBC. He was Vice President of Network Programming at ABC in the 1960s, before forming Spelling-Goldberg Productions with partner Aaron Spelling. Their company produced hit shows, including Charlie’s Angels, Starsky and Hutch, and Fantasy Island, among many others. Goldberg was also President and COO of 20th Century Fox, where he facilitated The Simpsons, as well as feature films.
