Sad news to report! Last Friday we lost a man responsible for more awesome television than anyone else in history! Television producer, writer and creator Glen Larson passed away last Friday of cancer at the age of 77.
To fully understand how his influence is all over the Secret identity Podcast lets just take a look at some of the shows he was a part of; Battlestar Galactica, Night Rider, Buck Rogers, Manimal, Magnum P.I. and The Fall Guy.
Some of our favorite people we have interviewed has something to do with a Glen Larson produced show including Noah Hathaway, Gil Girard, Melody Anderson and Erin Gray!
Starting his career in the mid 1960's with IT TAKES A THIEF, Lareson went on to work on such classics as SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN, HARDY BOYS/NANCY DREW MYSTERIES, B.J. AND THE BEAR...
QUINCY, GALACTICA 1980, AUTOMAN, QUINCY, GET CHRISTIE LOVE...
My childhood was filled with more Glen Larson visuals than anyone else, and for that I will be eternally grateful. His career was filled with comments about stealing movies and making them into TV shows but I say WHO CARES! I loved Star Wars and I also loved Battlestar Galactica!
You will be missed, sir!
