"Battlestar Galactice" and "Knight Rider" Creator Glen A. Larson Dead at 77

Posted: November 16th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Battlestar Galactice" and "Knight Rider" Creator Glen A. Larson Dead at 77Submit Comment
Glen A Larson, the creator of over a dozen hit television series, including "Battlestar Galactica," "Knight Rider," "Magnum PI," "Manimal," "Quincy ME," and "Buck Rogers," has passed away from esophageal cancer. He was 77 years old.

Larson began his writing career in the 1960s with an episode of "The Fugitive." He then won several Emmys in the 1970s for "McCloud" (best outstanding limited series) and "Quincy ME" (best outstanding drama series).

He is also known for his music talents. Larson wrote the theme songs for both "Knight Rider" and "The Six Million Dollar Man."

Dude created some of my favorite television shows of the 80s, but he WAS almost eighty, and judging from the image he didn't do much to take care of himself.

Oh well. One day cancer will be about as much a medical concern as rickets. Then it'll be something else we all die from at the age of a hundred. Like boredom.

RIP Larson. You've gone to the great McCloud in the sky.

'Buck Rogers' was a pretty cool sci fi show back in the 80's.

RIP

Matt Leblanc was caught cheating on his longtime girlfriend, Andrea Anders, with 3 women at a Halloween party

Robin Wright pulled the plug on her engagement with Ben Foster.
Apparently their 14 year age difference became an issue as she found him immature

Never saw his stuff although I loved the re-imagined version that Ronald D. Moore. Doesn't change the fact it wouldn't exist without his initial idea. RIP Mr. Larson.

@Deaft0ne
Maybe we should make Mystique the lead of the biographical film about him? It make just as much sense as Apocalypse. LOL

@Tan

That is truly reprehensible that you never heard of this guy. His shows air in reruns all the time on several channels.

Even in the opening credits of the new Battlestar Galactica, they show "based on the original series created by Glen A. Larson".

For shame Tanman, for shame!

@pornfly

Np

@codeman

You're an illiterate pothead! I am so surprised!






NOT!

Title could've done with a proof read or two. Galactice? Sounds like a chicken pastry.

Shame - guy seems to have had a hand in a lot of shows I grew up with.
