    Sherwood Schwartz passed away today at the the age of 94. He was a prolific writer and producer and is best known as the creator of Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch, two shows that enjoyed success during their original network runs (CBS and ABC, respectively) and even greater success in syndication. It was in syndication that both shows became American icons. He also created the 60s CBS sitcom It's About Time. RIP!

    He also wrote the song for Gilligan's Island and this very funny show called It's About Time. RIP SS Schwartz.....
