Tribute to Aaron Spelling
aaronheader.jpg

The '60s and '70s

When Aaron Spelling passed away last week at age 83, he took a part of TV history with him. Chances are, no matter what age you are, you watched more than one of his shows regularly. Whether it was cop shows, over-the-top family soaps, or teen dramas, over the course of four decades Spelling had huge successes in almost every genre.

Spelling created so many of TV's lasting icons, it is almost impossible to imagine TV without him. Tomorrow, July 1, TV Land will pay tribute to Spelling by airing a repeat of its acclaimed 2004 special TV Land Moguls, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Prolific TV producer Aaron Spelling dies

Prolific television producer Aaron Spelling, whose shows such as Beverly Hills 90210 and Dynasty helped shape US prime-time television, died Friday, days after suffering a stroke, his publicist said. He was 83.

Spokesman Kevin Sasaki said Spelling died at his home in Los Angeles about 6:25 p.m. local time. He had been hospitalized briefly after a stroke over the weekend.

Among Spelling's other television shows were Fantasy Island, Starsky and Hutch, Hart to Hart, Charlie's Angels, and Love Boat. He is survived by his wife, Candy, daughter Tori Spelling, who starred on Beverly Hills 90210, and son Randy Spelling, also an actor.

Spelling, a decorated war veteran, lifted himself out of poverty to become one of the richest and most powerful men in Hollywood. The Texas native was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's most prolific producer.

Serenity Now-- It's TV.COM's rundown of television-to-movie conversions

The Dukes of Hazzard is the latest in a long and illustrious line of television shows that have been ported over to the big screen. Television shows being turned into movies used to be a novelty; now, it's a necessity. With spiraling budgets and jaded audiences, Hollywood is searching for surefire hits. Sometimes it works. Other times, it's The Mod Squad.

Cartoons from the 1980s are the "vein du jour" for filmmakers. Hong Kong action guru John Woo is prepping a megabudget He-Man starring Sex and the City's Jason Lewis as the blonde, leather-clad sword-wielder who's "got the power." Recently, N.E.R.D. front man Pharrell Williams announced he is producing and scoring a big-screen treatment of the pre-Power Rangers cartoon Voltron: Defender of the Universe. In the "you can't get any bigger than this" category, megamoguls Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay will ...

The Mod Squad involved three hipper-than-hip undercover cops with a touch of menace and plenty of attitude. Younger looking than they were, these three police officers were able to earn the confidence of the bad guys, infiltrate their domain, and then bust their backsides while still looking good.

Miami Vice was still a decade away. The Mod Squad paved the way for hip and happening PO-lice on TV!
